    Perry Daimler Dingo.

    Not a great model sadly, very rough and lots of details omitted. Also pretty slap dash figures, the driver is especially Neanderthal looking. I wish I’d got the Rubicon kit now, but hey-ho, we’ll just have to go to town on this one.  Add suspension, hoods on the headlamps..  etc etc…  ok.. let’s see what we can do.

    First, I’m gonna convert the officer.

    Hey!  it’s me!

    Suspension – just some wire wrapped round some other wire.

    After painting I decided I still wasn’t happy, so added more details to the steering rods and to open up the vision ports – new ones made from plastic card of course.  Cutting the hatches open was simple enough because the resin is easily cut with a blade – drill the corners first of course.

    Better..

    Home-made decals added (none provided)

     

    Lastly, I think he needs a map open on the rear lid-flap or something..

    So I’ve given it a base, but it’s on a pin so it can come off. It’s a gaming piece not a diorama.  The Field Marshal lets you re roll for initiative each turn.

    Bang up job!  The additions and alterations add a lot more life.
