AHA!

     Das is ein KubleVagen for sure! That I found to be the next best one for me. The BEST? Bandai's 1/48 version. Talk about detail!

Looks like you're off to a great start!  I like the stowage that you got, should give it that "Lived In" look

Hey!

          Where did you get all the junk to load it with? That is sure gonna make it looked lived in! And it's so detailed. I do apologise! I looked back and realized you had shown the Box from Black Dog with the stuff init! Why haven't I seen stuff like that at my LHS? Did you have to mail or online order it?

Excellent build!  Your construction,painting, and weathering were all done to a great standard and the stowage that you added just adds to its fantastic presentation.  Well done!

That looks very sharp! Well done Surf! If I was to add any critique, I would suggest a bit more of a dusty appearence, but that is strictly a personal preference based upon time spent in the desert in the army. Your Kubelwagen looks perfectly good as is.

That looks great. The stowage of the gear realy brings it to life. You did a great job on it.
