Remember the guy who built this 1/4 scale Spitfire



Well I got chatting to him at the Aviation Open Day and he saw my Action Man display. He asked if I had any German troops and mentioned building a 1/6th scale Kubelwagen. He has been emailing me with updates on progress and today I picked it up from him. He has said I can borrow it for as long as I want. He also made a 1/6th scale road signpost.

















The wheels he bought in but the rest looks like it's made entirely from wood and weighs quite a bit.
It still needs extras such as steering wheel headlamps and perhaps some kit strapped to it. So I sahll be sourcing suitable material to enhance it.

To say I'm chuffed is an understatement. He told me today he's contemplating making some 1/6th Nissen Huts if he can source some corrugated material that he can bend to shape.
