A paying model job got me this. Out of production for quite some time but I was able to get in on a pre order for a limited re release. Incredible service from MFH . Paid on Feb 7 - at my door in NJ on Feb 9 .
All the way from Japan.

I’m going to tackle the Vincent first . I have emailed Kyoko twice asking if they have plans to reissue the Brough sidecar but have had no response.

Today the postman brought me a rare out of production Kit from Kit Form Services, an AEC Militant Mk. 1 6X6 artillery tractor, it’s a multimedia kit so it will be a rewarding challenge. Not many wheeled vehicles this size come in1:24th scale.

@Ferrari166, this aught to be a fun build to watch! I’ve purchased several parts from KFS, but never a full kit. I can say with clarity, the parts I have received have been really nice - good, clean details, and going together as instructed.

Cheers
Nick

Hi Nick I definitely like multimedia kits, especially when there are so may only pictures to refer to for the build.

As this is neither armor or a standard truck, which is the appropriate forum section to use for a build log?

No civilian use? Civilianised Matadors were ten-a-penny in the 1960s.

Should have googled before I posted: lots of them, including some cut down to 4x4’s as a sort of “Super-Matador”

@Ferrari166, It’s your choice about where you might decide to post. Within the parlance of armor, there are plenty of sub categories, in this case, a truck might be categorized as a “softskin”, meaning not an armored fighting vehicle, which includes most trucks and lighter vehicles.

If you look at the armor categories, you’ll see there are several eras identified, and you could find the one that applies to your truck. Or, as noted, you could always make a civilian version of the rig and post it in trucks.

I have posted a few builds in both categories, having recently built a Scammell Pioneer, which is a WWII truck ,in the the truck section, because I built it as a civilian rig -

Up to you!

Cheers
Nick
