Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

Have been working on this off an on.

Building a one foot square diorama that features an old 'cat' out back of a general contractor's lot. Timeframe is the 80's and the D7 that was war surplus has been sitting for   a few years.

The D7 is from Mirror Models....


Below is a pic from their web site, a really nice kit of almost 600 parts. 


Here are a few reference shots from an auction site....





some progress pics....













That is all for now,


Thanks for looking in!
