Manny, I love that dio, and I certainly dont want to hijack or sidetrack this thread, but I couldnt work out the storyline.  Abandoned US vehicles with no battle damage, no signs of their crew (alive or dead)  Obviously the German troops have moved into the sector ?  or are they lost ? 

PS:  Redleg, that M8 is looking great- luv that interior !

Hey Gang 

After my last build, I wanted to work on something smaller, easier and simple. This rest was with an M8 Greyhound. Over the past few months there have been a few of you who have built this kit, notable Biffa and Disastermaster.

I will build the Tamiya version but as a twist from my esteemed colleagues, I decided to use a little of Doog (snow) and a touch of Manny (figures to come). After doing research here is what I am shooting for.

We started out going through the first 3 assembly steps to get the under carriage built.  

Next we assembled the upper hull main parts and began some internal assembly.

Now....did you think I would not scratch and AM an easy kit....well I could not resist so we will add the Verlinden M8 interior, some PH sprinkeled throughout and tires with chains later.

Stated to get most of the interior in place for a wash

Interior completed and washed.

Thanks for looking in. On to mating the upper hull and beginning the turret. All comments welcome
