Sorry? Who? ???


On another note: It's good to see they promote their own 1/72 ATZ-5-4320 Fuel Bowser kit (ICM 72613) in the box art. :smiley: ;)

Yes, us modellers over here.

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

I hope the figures have better looking slouch hats, with the correct bash, than they do in the box art.

Photos of the kit:







And photos of the real thing in WW1 - a Ford model T of the 1st Australian Light Car Patrol in 1917 outside the Aleppo Railway Station - I presume these are the photos the box art is based upon:




And a restored one:

I am not overly concerned about the bash - they were quite variable up until the end of WWI.   It is the brim that concerns me.  Much too narrow and far too flat.   Most diggers bent their brims down to cover their eye.  At least they are not rolled/folded!

The bash actually looks pretty good but, yeah, the brims could do with being a bit wider - nothing a bit of Apoxy Sculpt can't fix, though. :smiley:

They look fairly close to those in the photos to me...maybe not in width but at least in flatness.



I just hope one can also mount a lewis gun at the rear and also give the driver his weapon:
