I built a Defender

Until I can get me a real Defender I’m making do with the occasional model.

This Airfix one is a bit more interesting than a bog standard civilian version, it’s a Land Rover Snatch depicted with an 8-man foot patrol as used in the early days of Op Herrick. Of course, the military soon realised that the Snatch was wholly unsuitable for use in Afghanistan but this was the best Land Rover model I could find and it was fun to make. The paint job on the squaddies isn’t brilliant, mainly due to my eyesight (!), but it’s only for a bit of fun. Making the scenery to mount it on was a super messy job – I enjoyed that!
