I ordered this kit last week

I ordered a couple of pieces of PE but not much. Try to do it mostly OOB. I found an interesting site that has what I think and hope is good info.

Ah, another kitty. Seems I will have to do two builds for this, and finish my 10/5 for MMI...

Sweet! Another one I can compare what I'm doing wrong against. This will be most educational.

This is almost turning into a DAK Tiger 1 w/ Doc. :laugh:

Alas the DAK had no organic Tigers. All tigers in NA where in separate heavy battalions. They are also painted in a very different manner to most DAK equipment...

After some research I have also got a new radio coming. Dragon gives 2 radios but only 1 radio rack. Looking them up they should be the FU5/FU16 radios. As it happens 1120 Productions has this radio set and BNA had it in stock. So ordered it and some Fruil tracks.

So as I have again lost a part for a kit in process it will be put away until I get a new part and this one started..
Anyone know of some diorama ruins for Libya?

Hello James,

Verlinden and Model Victoria both have stuff especially road signs. Remember this is desert and %80 of it is just that, desert. There is the main highway following the railways along the coast. Lots of barb wire and lots of mines and mines signs. And there are the few forts like Bengasi , Sollum , Alam Halfa they look like the old French foreign legion forts. A small base with a small section of
Italian RRtrackin a corner and a desert road in the middle with your build and maybe a sign. Just some Ideas that are fairly cheap and not so time consuming.
