I got asked off the shop keeper which I buy some of my models from in town if I could build him "Something east german and quirky" his words.
I got this kit as a birthday present.so I donated it to his corse.but before I show any images I wanted to make this one a rust bucket?I know the proper car is 95% plastic,but I wanted to try my hand at something new for me.

I added rips in the seats by carefully cutting it with a scalpel which nearly ended in body oil(blood) everywhere.

I painted it in Tamiya deck tan and RAF cockpit interior green,just cos the colours looked 70's and I had them already.

loving that you can upload images from your phone straight to post without photobucket or the equivalent.
