Very nice little models

I'm a long time aircraft modeller who bought this kit for the simple reason that it was the only kit I didn't already have in the small country store! To my surprise I had a great time building these models and I'm planning to make a little diorama with a Horsa glider. Despite the small size they take some time to build - more if you take the time to drill out the lightening holes in the 6 pounder's trailer. The jeep was the fiddliest and I had a few alignment issues of the main body to deal with. But the result is good and it certainly doesn't take up much room!

Something to get your teeth into.

I got this kit for Christmas. It´s really 3 models in 1 box as the Jeep, trailer and howitzer are each well engineered but with lots of scope for extra detailing and diorama building if you´re that way inclined (there are loads of good reference photos on the internet). The decals are tiny but the instructions are clear in showing you where to place them and giving the Humbrol acrylic paint a thin coat of dilute varnish helps to bring out the detail and prepares the kit for weathering. I replaced the kit tarpaulin on the trailer with a tissue paper and cotton one and was very pleased to find enough extra bits in the box to load up the Jeep in the way that these would have been - extra Brownie points to the designer for that! If there´s one very minor grumble it´s that I had to buy an "after market" crew set but that doesn't detract from this being a great little kit of some less glamorous but very important World War 2 allied machinery. Maybe the US option in a snowy scene?... Read more

Super build

Great build. I got this for Christmas and enjoyed it thoroughly. The painting is fun to do and now I have got better at the precise painting. May I just point out, that this build might not be suitable for beginning builders as it is complicated. This is because you have to connect the chassis to the underneath of the car. Also, if you choose to do the British version of the jeep, the painting instructions only show where the decals and painting places go on the American version. Other than this, good jeep overall. Good work Airfix!
