These are great little kits. With the addition of the detail set you should have a very impressive build.
Will the finished product be on a diorama?

Cheers,

Yes it will be. Teaming it up with a Panzer for a Meeting…Cheers Mark

The KW is now primed and basecoated in Grey. I am doing the KW as though she was shipped from Europe and resprayed in the Field for D.A.K. service. Will have some more soon…Cheers mark

You should have taken it in easy stages and built a Schwimmwagen first…

Well, if you wanted to do a DAK vehicle I’m not sure a Schwimmwagen would be appropriate; I can’t recall seeing one with Sand Tyres…
I had considered building the Tamiya Schwimmy as a '60’s Beach Buggy with Hippie Flower Power paint and surf boards but I think someone had beaten me to it.

That would still look cool though…Cheers Mark

Looks great Mark. I’ve not built the DAK one, but built lots of normal ones and they are lovely little kits to build. There’s some great extras in yours and the stowage looks great :+1::+1:

Thanks Mate much appreciated…Cheers mark

Well done and welcome back to the hobby. :+1: :+1:

Thanks Mate. I really enjoyed the Build…Cheers mark
