    A few extras-desert Jeep WWII

    The end product at last, have added extra stowage and kit including a customised version of the classic NZ lemon squeezer and really pleased with the final result...

    Hope you enjoy

    Looks fantastic, the SAS jeeps look awesome loaded out with gear. I may have to do something similar with my DAK kubelwagen and put it on a base.

    A picture frame,sand and a few rocks and there you have it haha
    For me this was my 1/6th holy grail as i grew up with stories & reading about the Commonwealth forces in Nth Africa who mid-war truly did help turn the tide against a respected foe in the Afrika Korps
    (both Axis and Allies were a bit more disparaging in regards to the poor old Italians lol)

    Looks really good, I do have one question tho. The large pack that sits on the hood? Was this available in North Africa? I was under the assumption that it was a mid - late war addition to the Brit. catalog. I have one sitting in my parts box and wanted to hang it from the back of my jeep as well but wasn't sure when it became available. Everything looks good tho and I really like the base.

    Absolutely brilliant job - so many small details the whole thing sings! I wish my SAS Jeep looked that good.

    I think you mean the Bergan. The large pack was a different beast.

    Thanks guys for your comments,as always much appreciated!!
    And yes that definitely is a late-war Bergen (had it in my spares tin),predominately used by commandos/SAS etc but chances are it will end up covered by scrim.
    When i first joined the army i did my training at a camp that had our national military museum nearby and so a bit of this diorama is based on this scene of troops and their Universal (Bren) Carrier at breakfast time in Nth Africa/Italy.

    Everything looks good but! I’d move the Brin Gun from the left front fender. It would be a piece of junk by the time you get to where you are going.

    Just beautiful in all of its detail. No wonder you were so inspired, I wish there were more such amazing dioramas done by our services. Splendid assortment of uniforms as well. I learned something new, after googling "classic NZ lemon squeezer".

    I have to say that this gave me a real boost today, shows the power of our fine hobby. Well done to you, RNZCTmuz.

    Cheers Mike-yes the nature of the desert theater meant uniformity went out the door quite a bit in WWII (however not so much in modern times with regard to Iraq, Afghanistan etc)
