your input would be great

Post by sandsmodels » Tue Apr 02, 2019 4:43 pm

i have just started to make the ww2 french bofors gmc conversion and was going to make it for the heller/airfix gmc as well as the hasegawa gmc, sadly after spending a long time making the basic heller chassis i have decided to make it mainly for the hasegawa gmc as it is much easier to assemble and is more gamer friendly, i have also leaned that heller maybe withdrawing it soon making it harder to get hold of, the hasegawa one seems fairly easy to get.
i may also do an open cab for the amercom ready made gmc as they are easily got hold of, not sure as yet.
any thoughts?

Weirdly the PDF of my build is in the download section of the website:
