Monty's Humber - Conversion into 8 cwt Lorry

Recommended Posts

Am I the only one being a bit frustrated about the absence of 1/32 vehicles to go with 1/32 aircraft models?

So I got this mad idea, using one of the few models available from the last century...


Maybe it's possible to make something like this...

Thanks! The plan is to use it together with a crashed Me Bf109-G2 trop.

The inspiration comes from some of the many photos of downed Me 109's from the North African campaign,

with a British vehicle in the background.


The scratchbuild...




The radio is from the Tamiya LRDG Chevrolet kit and bags from my stash...


I've added some details to the wheels, no hub cab etc...

Any chance of seeing the finish on this conversion Kent with at least one photo please ???

Like you, I despair at the lack of large scale vehicles to enhance the large aircraft.


Thanks for letting me know, I have updated the build thread....







Cheers: Kent
