Oddly enough, I wouldn't mind a Sherp. Have no idea what I would do with one except not get stuck in the winter time. :D

This thing is well prepared for a Saturday shopping spree in an average Siberian town.
The downside of a vehicle which is more unstoppable than others is, if you got stuck somewhere, there is nobody able to pull you out ;).

A friend of mine, who is more gifted than me concerning woodworks, has supplied me with two bases in the shape of the island, I'm living on.
Not sure which I will use (slight tendency to the darker one), but after the decision, the Lada gets it's mirrors and is done.

Cheers Rob

Curious:  How big is your island?  Is it the kind of place where everyone knows everyone else?

It is, it's not that small as it looks with the Lada on it, scale wise, but it has maybe 10.000 inhabitants. There is no mayor crime here and in the moment we have no Covid as well. A great place to be in these strange times.

I'm guessing from the shape you live on El Hierro?

Bingo Sherlock, that's where I live, I will give your compliments to my woodworking friend ;).

Thank you Winnie, I had lots of fun building it. It was my first full resin kit, and I would do some things different (better) next time, but in the end, I like the result. A Niva is far from perfect and that's how I finished it :D.

Cheers Rob
