That first pic looks a bit fake to me The others are great though

Loads of room for some more 'scale' ideas there, the towed gun is a nice one.

I reckon you need about 5 weathered soldiers clinging on and a load of misc tackle sitting in the back of the truck now... What land mines maybe? or supplies?

thats because the first photo is of a real one :P
thanks i was thinking of building this version with the 88mm gun (i think it is) on top. yeah good idea, did see what it would look like with a commander on it but because this is now larger than 1/16 scale didnt look quite right, and thank you for the linky has helped alot with ideas (Y)
cheers x

It's not an 88MM gun (that platform isn't large enough for that gun) but the Pak 40 gun instead.
