Hi guys

2 1/72nd Dragon West Europe SAS jeeps finished on commission, crew are converted PSC and Hat tank rider figs, difficult build with the gun pods having 11 parts each, the gun pods are just blu taced in for now, these were very expensive kits, I could have bought 4 of Airfixs excellent Jeep, 6 pdr mountain gun and trail for the same price.

Yeah, I'm wondering if it maybe an old age thing, shaking hands, squinting eyes etc, I am only 48, so I hope not, did not enjoy at all.

Nah its not you, I often find Dragon kits a complete pain, sometimes they are not quite as good as the reputation they have from their 1/35th scale stuff.

Hi Dan, great work. I'm working on a set of 1/72 Jeeps for Western Europe, but mine are more 'standard'. I built mine from Academy and Heller kits. And they're going to be crewed with Leon's 20mm Adler American Jeep riders. I have a WIP post on them on my blog, here:

I hear you on the ageing front: I'm 47, and I'm working in 6mm & 10mm for Napoleonics, and 1/72 for WWII. I'm just starting to get 'depth of field' vision issues, when I'm painting. I also have arthritis (psoriatic!), which is particularly affecting my right hand… and I'm right-handed. It's a Bleeped text, growing old, or being ill, or both!

Hi Sebastian

Nice builds, I have the academy kit somewhere in my personal stash, here is a link to some Brit para jeeps I built that you may like.

Nice, The US Rangers and USMC still employed the same concept in the '80s
