Would you accept a Kubelwagen??

It doesn't fly (at least not very high) but it was most definitely operated by RAAF 3 Squadron in their livery. A bit of searching turned up a captured German Kubelwagen put to use by 3 Squadron in Tunisia in WWII.

I've never joined a group build before but I already have a bunch of aircraft projects on the go so don't want to start another. Since the build is to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the squadron I thought this might be an interesting bit of their history and a cool modelling subject. No probs if no though since the 'rules of engagement' have already been laid out, Troy.

I guess. As long as the markings were reproduced and it was given an Aussie flair such as some rifles or gear in the back or a slouch hat on the seat. ;)

No problem Troy. Decals are available but I think I'll leave it to the fly boys. Have a good build

It looks like I will be doing a 3 SQN Mirage at this stage using the Italeri 1/48 kit.
