Great stuff again Alan!

It would be nice to see more dedicated articles/projects focusing around nice budget oriented builds.

Alan,

Superb work on that Jeep. These Italeri cheapies are classics - I've got a bunch stashed away because they're very good and better value than the Tamiya offering. Definitely one of the gems from Italeri's golden age...

Hi Tom,

Thanks. I'd like to do their medical jeep again sometime if I come across a kit. I re-cycled an old one as a load in one of my LCMs, but when I spot another I will most probably pick one up.



The Dodge Ambulance is also a sweet kit but desperately needs some decent windows.

Cheers

Hi there.
Nice Jeep, i am doing the exact kit as we speak.
have you ever considered getting an airbrush? it gives a really nice finish

Hi Paul,

No, I like painting by hand, it's half the fun. I can see the advantage of using an airbrush but the perfect finish is not something I'm after, although one would be great for the windows.

Cheers

Al
