    Hi guys .
    Finally our new house is ready for us to move into so I thought I'd start on a small build before the man cave has to be packed away for the move.
    So this is going to be my last build in this house.

    Hi all well here's the latest pics of my schwimmwagen the interior has been primed and shadow coated with NATO black and the wheels have had a coat of black rubber.
    I must say that its a nice kit to build with no flash the engine is quiet detailed which is a shame I will be modelling it with the boot down.

    Managed to get a coat of NATO green onto the kit last night. I may have to wait until the move has been completed to finish it as I'm getting my ear bent about emptying the man cave.

    Well guys time has beaten me on this build. The bench has to be taken down ready for next Fridays move. Luckily my mates are giving me hand with decorating and carpets so the bench will be up and running by the following week and I'll get cracking on the weathering meanwhile here's the latest pics
