ICM [Mercedes ? don't tip off Daimler Benz lawyers] G4 (1939 production) 1/24 scale is a nice looking kit. I have always been fascinated by this car, when I built Bandai 1/48 Africa Korps as a teen, wished there was a kit. Then Hasegawa came out with the 1/72 kit. Years later this company in Ukraine came out with the 1/35 kits, several versions which are just top up or down. What I find interesting, there are more parts on the smaller scale, such as separate frame and fenders, the big scale are molded together. There is photo-etch for the 1/35, not for the 1/24, I just want a star! Hasegawa, with modifications: ICM 1/35: This rendering is sort of what I'm thinking of, not the whitewalls: This AMG G63 is sort of what I'm aiming for: Measuring the roof from the Heller 170V sedan compared to the G4 body. Used a proportional divider to draw to the same scale as the awesome instructions. Been wanting to use these Fireball Modelworks LED light bars and farm jack on something, just because they are cool. Found out about this book here on the forum. Also got Hobby Design turbos. Have nice diamond plate, a Mauser, jerry cans, should be good enough to start. Have changed my mind on the design, will go for the pickup. The off road performance was not great, since the front axle was not driven. Was thinking of imagineering a transfer case (using left over Celica part) and front axle (have a parts box differential and half shafts) with a modern independent suspension, with rack & pinion steering. Will jack up a little, not go Bigfoot crazy, the tires are awesome so not going to change. Rally style mud flaps are a must. Paint color is undecided, but it's obvious what my first choice is, and this time gloss coat for sure. The roof will require sectioning like crazy, body shouldn't be hard to stretch and make into an El Camino (just kidding), will *have to* make a working tailgate. Bumpers will be shaped like a Jadgepanzer, with diamond plate on top, winch on the front might be cool. The 1937-39 production had slightly fatter fenders, thinking of modifying. I have not seen one of these kits built, now that I posted, some will probably come out of the woodwork. ? custom = Benutzerdefiniert kick butt = Hintern treten hunting = Jadg shredder = Aktenvernichter terrain vehicle = Geländewagen sedan = Limousine
