Finished, but sorry, "RAGNAROKK" does not have the number 151, but 111. But the 151 was left.

Wonderful stuff, Didi! And great to see „Tigerente“ including in your amazing collection (someday, that Depot has to add black stripes to their yellow scheme  ;)

I love the build-up on Ragnarokk's main wheels  :smiley:  Does anyone know why the extra 'k' in that name?

That's a good looking build but the stowage really makes it for me!

I like it on the other side too.

Last week I make the finnish in "Vaaleanvihreä" (name of the colour). Yesterday I made the camouflage. Need HATAKA-Colour. That can be the real modern finnish colours.

I especially like the photos of the back.

The tail lights are a great detail!
