Very subtle angle iron frame additions to the interior super structure, subtle as it's hard to appreciate the detail and the photos are not so good but if you look hard they are there. They will stand out a little more with some highlighting later.

Tricky job that gutter also added lots of other joint cover details

I have tucked the rear lights under the body out of harms way, I have researched many examples and the rear lights seem to be all over the shop including down low like these.

Like the British Army says " if it don't move paint it" and if it moves paint that as well.

This is enamel and as sticky as a stick.

No masking or very little, as Stephen says the air brush is so accurate you just don't need to.

Love that DBG! When the wiring has relaxed most of the cable ties can be removed but for now they stay.

Even more photos. Almost ready for the interior top coat, cant wait to get that done.

What I don't have I have been making like the small arms racks.

Rear lamps tucked out the way, this also makes removing the body a whole lot easier.

Lower wattage bulbs makes for a more subtle dash lamp and map light. I have also manufactured a hand brake lever from a Tiger 2 track pin.

Its good to take these photos and scrutinise them thoroughly and then make changes until it all looks just right.

A period edit looks more correct for this shot.

Need to fix down that wire to the map light.

The inside of the hood was the test piece for the paint thinner mix ratio which is seldom the makers recommendation.

First coat of paint, not sure if I like it or not yet, we will see after some subtle weathering. Still have bolt holes to hide and some painted detail to add.

some gentle weathering around the inner door.

Subtle weathering around the wheel arch and the panels.

The interior is a couple of shades lighter.

Weathering the interior will be a nightmare but must be done, think of all the boots and buckles and weapons knocking the paint about.

Well I don't think that DBG works in 1/6th scale so now its desert yellow for the Tunisia campaign , it's the contrast that I was looking for so I will keep the interior green and use the green undercoat of the body for the weathering process which I have already started.

I may add the brown if I'm feeling brave.

I think its more believable in this colour.

Hello Phil, aka Me Quad, or should that be the other way round....enjoying your build immensely, how on earth do you find the time....I found the Quad to be a most satisfying model, looking forward to seeing the Quad, gun and limber on display. Best wishes for the New Year mate, and keep up the good work....Mick
