Ian that looks awesome! Looking forward to your build, I think these little specialty vehicles that they make are really cool! If only he'd come out with a White Scout Car!

Hi guys,
I thought I would do a stage by stage build so everyone would see whats involved in building one of these kits. So on with the pics

Stage one starts with the side of the gearbox parts used

and installed

Next stage finishing the gearbox parts used

and installed -Andrew designs don't supply any grease for the gearbox so I used some Tamiya grease I had


Next stage is installing the gearbox parts used

and installed

next stage is finishing the drivetrain parts used

and installed- the kit contains adjustable rear idlers just loosen the screws and slide the idler then retighten

thats all for tonight got to help the missus wrap the rest of the presents Merry Christmas everyone

Cheers Ian

That is going look nice. Thanks for sharing. The Kettenkrad was always something I wanted to add for display. I wonder how the drove in real life.[sm=50_50.gif]

well another small update- I noticed from my references that the drive wheels should have two nuts between each spoke i presume for changing the rubber blocks as they wear out, so out came the hexagonal punch and die set had to scrape off the paint to get good adhesion

Then repainted them also got the second run of track assembled then painted both first with a red primer, then a coat off red brown and then a coat of earth colour before painting the track pads with vallejo dark rubber will leave them to harden for a day or two then finish with mig pigments


Cheers Ian
