Here's the little bugger that started my plastic addiction :dry: , built many many years ago (early 1990's), was my first semi-serious truck model attempt. Actually a little embarrassed to show it but it is a good reminder of how far things in the hobby have advanced. Sorry about the picture quality - pre-digital:













Now residing in the big plastic graveyard (didn't survive one of my many moves during my military service :( ), I recently contemplated building another till I saw the kit price :blink: .
Cheers for having a gander.

That's awesome m8. Shame you lost it but congrats on the accolades you received from the sweet build.
Your Mog looked great.

Lots of 1/35 Armor mainly WWII German and a few Modern British/American pieces, 1/32 Aircraft and 1/48 Aircraft. Aircraft chosen to replicate RNZAF and RAAF types through the years. Some RAF & USAF types exist also.

That's excellent!
Really nice example, first look through I thought it was the 1/35 kit, but very neat in 1/24.
thanks for sharing.

That's a great bit of work mate. Nothing to be ashamed of there.

Very cool! I've always had a soft spot for military trucks.
