best fitted prior to the drivers seat going in, gives you a little move tweezer space

I’ve had this on order since it came out and haven’t recieved them yet. Yes I ordered two one for a straight build and another to build the boyancy tanks on. I purchased the Monogram -c model to copy. What happened? Takom out with the -c model . it is released by now.

I love the current generation of models with all the petite details and greebles. This kit looks fantastic.

Thanks for all the comments Guys and kind words of support, it is a challenging build, not for the novice or faint hearted. If you keep your cool with regular breaks for a Iced Tea, you should get along with it.


I used tweezers and clothes pegs to pinch parts into alignment at times, like here getting the front plate to fit the air inlet surround.

The vehicle mounted Radio is nicely detailed and fits well.

Yep, not much bigger than a Willy’s Jeep.

It’s a real nice build and reference photos I have never seen before.
