Thanks,
The stowage in the back and the machine guns are not supplied in the kit.
Yes this is the tamiya 1/35 kit.
Rubber tyres supplied in the kit split over time,#1 replace with resin (I found this out first hand)
Machine guns supplied are very basic and old#2 replaced with resin,
Stowage supplied in kit are ok,But I had lots of spares in the stash,DML jerry cans,resin tarps and boxes,crates scratch made also added some hand made traps,wire handles and hooks etc

The rocks just look so good. Very nice work all round. I'll bet this looks even better in the flesh/ plastic

Great little scene. Your rock is quite impressive also. . I brought some of those Woodlands Scenics molds a couple of years ago but have not used them yet. You got some really good results with them.
