And the UNIMOG

Argentinian conscripts in barraks clothes, circa 1985, 29 Infanteria de Monte (29 Jungle Jnfantry regiment) .
The Marlboros are wrong, he marlboros are bad, at that time in the barracks we smoked cigarettes very cheap because every time you took out the package there were two or three companions "mangueando", asking you a cigarette.

If any Argentine enters this forum and asks why the one in green does not have the "black knees" or the leggings, classics in the jungle ifantry regiments in those times, it is that at that time we no longer used them except when they took us out into the jungle.

Fantastic work with the Unimog Carlos !
With all the molds and all the resin.
:yeah:

Good idea and to know with the Unimog base model.
For my planed Argentina forces I find only a 404 from Wespe.
Now one more option !

Figures are as always great in pose.

Thanks for the comments mates. I think I'll finish the vignettes this weekend.
Wiking, you can work with that old Tomica unimog without need to pass it to resin, but as the model needs to cut the roof and put one of canvas and modify the windshield always better to work with resin that is easier than the metal of the vehicle original. All that is the chassis can do with the one of the Revell Dingo, although you will have to shorten it to take it to the measures of the 406 or the 416 if you want. and you can use the same wheels, although the rings of the rims are different, but in the tutorial that he wrote shows how to do it only using the back of the wheel.
Anyway, I suggest passing everything to molds and resin to work more easily and have more copies.
