Nice work Johan! The Voyager details look great ... makes me want to consider getting the upgrade. My RSO is way down the road though.

In the meantime, I'm on the road and enlisted with this, which just arrived today! 📦

A missing hull tub can't keep a motivated modeler down!

I started on some of the sub assemblies. The engine is done (as far as kit parts go. It needs detailing) and also the load bed. Now with the voyager detail set you get the option to build the hatches workable which i decided to do. This turned in to a really nice little assembly that i very much enjoyed building!



Sry about the horrid image compression...

... Happy days, it seems as the entire hull tub (piece J) is missing from my RSO kit. Thanks for that Hobbyeasy


So two cabs were included in the box and no hull tub .. was the box factory sealed? If so, shouldn't DML be at fault and not HobbyEasy? I hope that somebody makes this right for you ... and they should do so post haste! ⚡️

I'm on a mission to inspect my stash now! 👓 📦📦📦...

I reached out to hobbyeasy and they will help me get the part! To be honest I probably shouldn't have called them out as they've always been super helpful to me. So kudos to them!

The extra cabin is actually a replacement as the original one was broken. Wish i had paid better attention and checked the other content back then instead of finding out now...

Its a pity since MG was used as defensive weapon.



Well, think of it as a chance to build something you might not normally go for! Maybe even go for something completeley different if you feel really bad about omitting the MG. A tractor or bulldozer or something like that? (Obviously, there is nothing stopping you from building the truck for the campaign without the MG and then add it after you submitted to the campaign gallery )


Alvaro: That sounds like a nice set! Look forward to seeing it

What about WC63MG with M2 gun mounted? I'm thinking also about some artillery towed.



WC63 is fine. No gun though!

Hi all, quick question, would the Bedford WMD or Albion 3-Point fueller be eligible for this campaign? Neither is particularly heavy duty but both were used extensively by the British army and the RAF throughout world war two, if so, I would love to jump in on this campaign if I can as I have both in 1:48 scale as recently released by Airfix

Cheers, Simon




Definitely think they are suitable. I would love to see the Albion!

Once I'm settled into our new house I might join this campaign. I might enter the Airfix 1/76 Bedford QL's

I was thinking of entering with this, but not sure if its eligable. The rules say no jeeps or humvees - its heavier than those, (the S in S.GL is for "schwere" - heavy) but I'm not sure if its heavy enough..?




Hi Neil, sorry I missed your question! I would say no to this one since it's infact nominated as a passenger car. The LE.GL. Lastkraftwagen would be OK though.





OK, no worries
