   Steve,
Thank you very much my old friend. I hope I've in a small way inspired you and others to give one of these WW I vehicles a go. I'd love to see what you could do with a Airfix or Pyro Ford Model T. There's a multitude of possiblities.
Highest Regards,

Wonderful, clean scratchbuilding. What sources do you use for references? I've not seen much on WW1 vehicles.
Cheers,

Another blast from the not too distant past!  I love this one as much as your ambulance, my old friend.  I agree with the other's.  You are an extraordinary scratch builder.  This build actually sent me to Google in search of an old Revell Renault kit, even though I don't build in 1/32 scale (yet).  I really hope you will finish that diorama.  I've been looking forward to it ever since you first gave birth to this project.
Cheers,
Bud

Fantastic work! Thanks for posting this, very interesting to see how it's been created.

And I'll second what Bud said- would be great to see this in a completed diorama one day!

Frankly Gregory, you're head and shoulders above me. There's no arguing that my friend.
