Guild Xmas Buddy Build

I've only a small number of post-WW2 African troops, so The Guild Christmas buddy item I received was quite a change to my normal fare.

The task was a JB Land Rover and the objective was "if you could make it open topped its for an African militia could be civilian or military in colour - battered is the preferred look"



Since I've done lots of military vehicles I went for a civilian version. I've seen quite a few African vehicles where the bonnet (hood) is lashed down so I added some strapping across the front and move the spare wheel to the rear.



One of the rules was that the item couldn't be posted until Christmas day, so here it is.
