Is the wood grain on that crate painted?

The cab is a brilliant example of slide mould technology.
Have a look at the instructions:

Yes.

Agree some more British vehicles from Rubicon would be good. They have rather tended to focus on the Germans and Americans so far...  :)

Bloody nice. Good work, Richard.

My dad had a CMP Chevy in the 70s and 80s. We went on a camping holiday to France in it in 1979. My brother and me slept on stretchers in the back. It was a commemorative  tour of the Normandy landings area and we got to go to lots of official receptions at French town halls where they gave us free glasses of Calvados. Yes, in those days the fine people of Normandy were perfectly happy to give hard liquor to eight-year-old children. I got completely shit-faced more than once.

It was an earlier model with the type 12 cab, but it was a CMP Chevy nonetheless. My dad's mate had a CMP Ford with a type 13 cab that was the spit of your model.

Ah, happy times! Thanks for dredging up those memories with your model-making.  :)

At this level of magnification, you can see the only tell-tale sign of a plastic kit... the two little circles on the inside of each of the upper side panels, which I think are something to do with the moulding process - not a historical detail! Probably I should have filled these in or filed them away or something, but - meh...  ;)

One self is one's own's harshest critiquer I suppose! (I am sure your inner grammer nazi nearly died there!1!!)

I never would have noticed anything but a well painted classy British bucket-mobile unless you'd mentioned!

Now all I see are those indentations.  lol

Your scenic phots are just awesome. I hope i can realise just a fantastic landscape for my Afrikakorps as you got for your forces.

Best regards

Great work Richard! Glad to hear your eyes are getting back to normal.

On the CMP, what, no windows? Come on, get out that clear plastic and put in some 'windscreens'  Otherwise, your just slacking! ;D

Keep up the great work!
