Now i screwed the Body to the Frame.


Also, i removed the little lamps and closed every holes.




The most LRDG´s are righthanddrive, but my basicmodell was an left handdrive. So i modifid it to an right handdrive

What a brilliant piece of work. I envy model makers ability to do such intricate work with so much detail and precision. Making small parts that look right is very difficult.

I will look forward to seeing it painted. :)

Manuel; what you are doing is really MODELLING (I can hardly manage to glue plastic parts together...). Fascinating!


Please allow me the remark that due to the type of tires used by the LRDG, the mudguards had to be widened by inserting a parallel strip of metal. Cannot tell you now how much it was but I recal somehow that for the older type of Chevrolet (the WA) it was about 11 cm.

Manuel; whilst I admit that your tires are not the typical ones used by the LRDG - they areactually not thaaaaat wrong. Once they havd received the first batch of purpose built trucks from Canada, they were equiped with such type of tire.


Unfortunately those tires were everything else than good and burst easily so that several missions had to be stopped and the patrols were forced to return to base to get new tires.


Attached a picture:

Manuel; Jack is quite often 'on the road' so his answer may come not that quick as you would wish. But I guess that he will be fascinated by your work as me - and obviously many others here in the forum!
