Hi there everyone.
I'm feeling a bit bad because of the poor effort put in to this build over the last 8 or so weeks.
Work has been madness and no sign of letting up, this has taken 60 to 70 hours a week of my time which leaves not a lot for building after children and hubby duties.
Any way I have managed to get some more done so here it is.
Going to have to push hard to get done in time though, fingers crossed ( and toes )

Hey Dave, I don't know if you have come across this page online but I just bumped in to it and thought of your build straight away.
Go to the page and just scroll down. Really interesting info and pictures . . . www.ww2enimagenes.com/2014/06/camiones-e...ll-express.html#more
Cheers

Hi all
Small update :)

Gloss coat applied













And some Decals :)
Jeep still to do







Once jeep is done all 3 will get gloss coat again and then some weathering can begin :woohoo:
Lots of small bits and pieces still to complete also, MG's on both trucks to fit, tools, petrol and water cans more cargo to make up etc etc

Anyway cheers for looking.
