Rubicon 15 Cwt. CMP truck completed
« on: March 21, 2018, 10:05:10 PM »
So, with newly restored eyeballs following a double cataract op entailing two months off painting; followed by various experiments with expensive custom milled modelling specs (£250 - completely useless) and cheap optical devices (optivisor - £25, brilliant) to get me back in the saddle, I have now finished my Rubicon 15 Cwt. Canadian Military Pattern truck.
 
Very nice model, quite easy to put together - but somewhat fiddly to paint with all those nooks and crannies.
The fellow with the Thompson is concocted from a 1/56 Rubicon body, 1/56 Perry arms and a Tamiya 1/48 head - doesn't look too top heavy though  :)
The stowage is from Rubicon with a couple of Perry bits.









And a couple of 'en scene' shots...  :)

Very cool.  I have a couple of these, and was impressed with the slide-moulding on the cabin. I had a bit of an issue with the fit on the canopy though. 

Glad you're able to paint again.  I need new glasses....
