Here's 2 photos of the Zvezda M3 scout car for the campaign I will be adding one or two MK19 40mm grenade launchers The story behind it is that the owner is a member of the Pa NG,the 28th division They were stateside during the war and invasion The owner,SgtMajor Weaver decided to put it to use guarding the remaing farmland in Pa

I will paint it OD first then a coat of field drab over the body and cargo bed I will add a coat of red brown camo to it then

Neat idea. I like the story line. How is the Kit top build? Any major problems with the fit?

Hi General!
Looks like its going together very nicely, I'm eager to see it finished! I too was wondering how it fits and builds up?

Cheers

Thanks for the comment

Dave
It's not a bad build It's from Zvezda Quite a bit of flash And a lot of ejector pin marks to fill in The fit was pretty good I will be adding new handles and cap to the jerry cans They only came with the one pronged handle

Zvezda also has a version that has a tarp on the top That will be next version I build

YouŽre welcome

What kind of items came with the kit (as bags, MG....). I like the model a lot, maybe IŽll buy some to make them chilean, we use those until 1980...

It comes with two .50 mg's and one .30 mg Also has an M3 grease gun smg The mg's are of poor quality in my opinion Better off replacing them It also comes with a few packs The packs aren't too bad
