RPM Ford T M.M.G.S American WWI 1/72.
I know I am going off on a bit of a WWI tangent at the moment, know idea why or really care I am enjoying it.
I saw this in the local model shop and thought I will get that when I have got the cash.Sod's law they sold out when I returned, so a quick troll of EBay and this was the result.
I like trying to build different models from unusual era's and I think this fits the bill.
I have never heard of this company so I did the sensible thing and bought an armoured car as well.
It was a pig of a build, it only had a few parts 20-30 bits.They are badly moulded and the instructions are a bit iffy.I am sure a descent builder would have no problems with this though so don't be put off by this.
The Vickers was donated from a British ESCI soldier because the one in the kit was crap.I saw on on the net with a brass one fitted.It looked the nuts, but it was the same price as the kit and you couldn't get hold of one any way.
I would like to dazzle you with facts about this model but all I know about the Ford model T is that it comes in black.I have now proved this a lie as you can see.
The figures are from the excellent WD models range and the stowage is from SGTS mess.
I have few figures from this company and plan on getting more.
The decals I cocked up with a bit to much micro solve and had to take the shine off them with weathering powder which accounts for the dusty look rather then muddy.
