Paper Cruiser's Mercedes Unimog 406

Hi all,

Some of you might have seen my updates on this build, as I was asked by Jesse to help him test build the Unimog, there were some 37 weeks between the last post on Facebook, and the first update I made a couple of nights ago.

Yeah, a little interruption called my graduate degree took over, so it sat for a few months while I finished everything up.

https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...1&l=8d03b5f3c2
The above is the link to the album, so you can see some of the in progress steps I recorded during the build.

I would like to thank Jesse for allowing me to help him out on this model, the model is richly detailed, I would slot this model as an intermediate level kit, as the rounded roof edges and the hood take some skill to roll and then glue up.

I hope you enjoy the pictures, and if you have any questions, just ask

Rick

That came out well - it certainly does convey the awkward look of the real thing nicely!

I'm sure it would look better with photos ...

That link doesn't seem to work. Didn't work yesterday, either.

You don't strike me as the type to require hoops to jump through, and since I don't do the evil Facebook, I don't know all that can go wrong with it. Many times folks will post things as 'public' there, so that folks don't have to log in.

Or you could post an image or two here ... just a thought

Try it again, and see if you can see the build pictures
