JD Great job Mike! I really like the mechs from Konflict 47, but are a bit pricey for me. I like how you went with a red paint scheme too, I've been wanting to paint and weather something red for awhile now. Very cool!

Mike Szwarc Thanks, JD. Bought the Grizzly kit a couple years ago, and don't remember what I paid, but thought it a bit pricey, too. It is a resin and white metal kit, but doesn't even include a decal sheet. The resin parts aren't bad, but also not the best, as it's clear that the master was 3D printed, but not cleaned up as well as other resin kits using 3D printed masters. Anyway, the build was good practice for my growing collection of Ma. K kits.

JD I'm totally to Ma.k! I have several kits including a rare one, waiting for my skills to improve before I even attempt them.

James C Fabulous looking build.
My Uncle had one of these (minus the towing winch) back in the early 80's.
It was blue-grey in colour and fairly weathered and beat up (just like your model)
The three of us kids used to sit in the back of the tray, with my Uncle (driving) and Mum and Grandmother sitting up front in the cab, and the 6 of us (plus dog) would make the trip to Piha every Xmas. Great times and fond memories. This build brought them flooding back!

Christoph Kunz You did a superb job with this kit, and the scratched winch gives it the extra kick. thumbs up
Mike Szwarc Thanks for looking and commenting, guys. James C, thanks for sharing the memory. I always get turned around with you guys from down under, forgetting that Christmas comes during your summer!
