Great walkaround, thanks!

Yes, I hope someone builds one of these. I have one in HO scale.

Overloon -- great museum. I was there in 2008 and have a bunch of photos, including me with my finger in a hole in the side of an M4. I need to get those pix sent in to feature here.

Absolutely superb, thanks so much for linking this. I have the 1/24th scale Italeri kit of this which is destined to take a place in a diorama with several other vehicles plus a VFS P-47. The thread has already started HERE with a Revell Opel Blitz Cargo.

The pictures here will be a great help.

Cheers, D

Ola Guys

Thanks for the replies.

@ Frederick
Yes Overloon is a really nice museum. I have been there several times through the years and it has improved immensely. It was certainly a good thing that they moved the more unique vehicles inside instead of rotting in the park. And with the Marshall museum coming to the collection it pretty much doubled in size. And the last two years they had the really amazing Militracks show from which I get the walkarounds. The coming edition in May already promises to be even better then the last two.

@ Damian
You're welcome. I'm really glad it is usefull for people and I'm glad it will help you with your 1:24 project.

@ Alan and Frank
Thanks for the replies. There will be more... much more

Robert,

Great walkaround! It inspired me to post a review of the Roco model:

@ Frederick
Great review. Fun little vehicle that is.

@ Pit.
Now you mention it yes I think you would like it with your job. I'm still around. More active then ever you might say. I have not been to any of the Belgium events last couple of years. Would love to but other things came in between or the finances had to go different directions. You know how it is. Hopefully this year but that depends a bit how much money is left after the Marriage
