They are rubber tyres, the kit is elderly but still fantastic. The 20mm is from Italeri, it’s not bad at all. Didn’t care much to having being towed.  Thanks for the pics Martin. 

I also bought the SAS jeep to add to a future diorama........haven’t built one of those since the mid 70’s......

Hi Phil, seems to be more a paint log than a build log :D, as the construction phase seems to be almost finished. However, I will follow closely and hope to get some new ideas out of your painting and weathering. I have a basic Tamiya Jeep with a Legend SAS conversion set and some Alpine figures waiting, so count me in.

Cheers Rob

Another update, since I’ve been on LSM you guys have inspired me to step out of just building OOB. With that here’s the latest. Found in the AM stash some Resicast sand channels and some very fine RB chain.....also added a spare wheel sponson because of the Breda in the back......8126986E-3462-4DD1-84BE-BD61EAF613E1.thumb.jpeg.a3d818e10e1ddaf1cde61114dbbf7612.jpeg

I like the additions, too.  There are so many little things that add depth to a vehicle build that don't come with most oob

Thanks Gaz, you’re totally correct, I don’t have the luxury of unlimited bench-time but adding these small embellishments is very satisfying.......

Hi Phil, I like your build and the additions look good and add character. Right now I read a book about SAS actions in the Vosges mountains and they deploy airdropped Jeeps there. Be sure, that after a while not two of them looked alike. The freedom with armor building lies in lots of modifications in the field or on your bench ;), which likewise would be historical correct or fit your imagination, it's up to you.

Keep it coming with your inspirational build.

Cheers Rob

Unfortunately Sunday evening and that’s it for another week.......so wish I had a job I could get home at 5.30pm instead of 8.00pm at the earliest. Anyway probably another 4 hours on this and that’s it.
