This is the Trumpeter kit with the only add-ons being some stowage parts from Legend and Tamiya. The model was painted with Model Master acrylics with the base coat airbrushed on with Medium Green. Some panels received a lighter shade around the edges and center portions.

Kevin: great looking build. My only comment would be that the box strapped to the spare tire doesn't look too secure. A couple of good bumps and it will be all over the roadway. Happy Modelling, -zon
