well slow progress on this one, and on everything else...
(been getter ready for the next group build, but wont use this as its semi started... :P)

Aussie Armour Mk2/3 Ferret. It will need a little bit of work once done to add some missing details as well as a good thick primer to hide some of the casting booboo's.
The Accurate Armour Ferrets are a step up, but then again so is their price. (Firing Line have one as well, but their detail is not as nice as AA ones, and all their details are typically white metal).

Thought not back to Kiwi land for a a few weeks or so to dig it out.

Now that Dragon are releasing an injected Saladin, one will feature here for sure ! :cheer:

Work has been keeping me away, and my Korea theme is progressing much slower than i hoped... may have to jump ship and get this baby rolling at the same time...

Thanks for digging it out when you are back.

Oh yeah, I'll be getting at least one of those too! I'm building the AA Ferret II at the moment as a QAMR vehicle - it's a luvly wee kit.

Cheers,
Ian

Ok, while I'm in the mood, may as well revive another old thread as with the other one I'm working on.
Was going to post this in the 'new Stash...' thread, but more appropriate here, where it will be used.
This will be my next big project after K-Force.

The Saladin will be used as per the photo reference in the earlier post #23...

Just wondering how this diorama is going as I've just rekindled my interest in the Emergency as a modelling theme this time in 1/48th. Currently converting a Tamiya Dingo and scratch building an armoured rail Jeep. Also have more Dingos, Jeeps, Humber armoured car sitting on the shelf.
