I used Testors Model Masters and Tamiya paint on this 1/35 Dragon kit. The tires were painted with Tamiya’s Rubber Black.

 

 

 

The snow is a combination of Hudson & Allen and Tech Star. The top of the jeep was dusted with the H&A, while the bottom was the combination.

Western Electric #12 cord was used to wrap around front bumper. It’s stranded and you can pull one strand out to simulate smaller diameter rope.

Items in the  back of the jeep are from the spare parts box. The Thompson and M1 is from a DML soldier kit.

I used a lot of resin extras from DEF: the wheels with chains, the spare tire; and figures. Each figure was about 3 to 4 pieces
