Humber Mk. IV Tamiya 1/48
Posted by MattSz on Monday, March 20, 2017 7:04 PM

Hello
Between a few more serious projects I did this little armoured car.
Vehicle frrom 1st Reconnaissance Regiment, 1st Polish Panzer Division, Snaffle Exercises, Newmarket, England, July/August 1943

The Tamiya kit was wety good to work with it. This is my in-box review video:

Of course I change some things here and there:
-replaced the fork lift hangers
-added some wires
- drilled the front reflector and added transparent cover
- replaced spare wheel mount and handles for spare fuel cans
-added handles on the engine deck
- drilled main gun barrel and Besa mg
- added some resin stowage

And the final look:

Great job on the car and figure. 

And I love the base, one day I've got to try something like that instead of setting the model on a flat ground.

Really nice build and great job on the base as well. And i like the tree.

I didn't know they conducted excersises near newmarket, going to have to look into that. Appropriate name for an excersise.
