Nice job. What medium did you use for the windows?

That's a very tidy model. I wish I was as neat as that!

A professional modeller of railway subjects, and a reborn Airfix fan. Definitely into combat aircraft in service on all sides in the summer of 1940, but known to occasionally veer off into other interesting things!

Thanks! I use Airfix Clear fix for the windows.

That’s a really good effort Tomek; of a kit that was always one of my favourites. It's really good to hear of its imminent re-release. The cab is fairly spacious, and I just wondered what colour you painted it. I've only ever seen a real one of these once, at a military museum in North Wales about twenty-five years ago. I was surprised to see this particular vehicle was painted silver inside, a colour I had only seen before on the interior of AFV's. I don't know whether this was done for accuracy or artistic licence! Does anyone have any accurate information on this?

@Tomek - Cheers; I thought those might be Clearfix.

 

@jopres - Lots of military vehicles are painted silver (or white) inside because that makes it easier to trace fluid leaks. I don't have a specific reference for the Quad though.
