The cab interior is nearly finished, the rear interior has its first coat of colour and now sits on its wheels. The small details for the rear are next and then onto the rear doors. Then the weathering to give it the final finish.......

Nice job!

Where do you buy the basis kits that you use? Are they in Australia? I gather they are a plastic put together model kit?

I wouldn't mind a series 3 kit if such a thing exists.

I purchase the basic kits when I see them, they are the Tamiya Pink Panther and the Tamiya Ambulance. Both of these kits are old releases and have been hard to find for a while, the company re-releases them from time to time so when you see them you buy them. The other parts for the Aussie mods are available here and the rest is hand made. The 2a Ambulance is about 20% kit, 20% aftermarket parts and 60% scratch built (hand made). If you want Aussie stuff you have to make it, so this is how it is done......

Attached is a couple of recent pictures, I have made a start on the stretcher frames and will post more pictures soon...

I has been a while since I have done anything to this model. I have a new position at work and I don't seem to have as much time to do these. I have now finished it and will soon move on to another model.

Great work. I always admire you scratch builders - I have never been game enough to depart from the kit. The weathering really brings it to life.:D

G'day Dennis,

Mate if you want it you would have to come and visit, I would hate to think what it looked like after a trip in the post!!!!!. Unfortunatly it is not available as the amount of time I spent on it makes them quite special to me and allows me to have a greater collection of vehicles than I can have in real size. There will be more to follow as I would like to have one of each design/modification.

Regards
Peter
