Thanks for the positive feedback. It has been difficult as there are none here in Australia to go and look at for reference. Pieces have been scratch built ( hinges and handles )or the net searched for parts that are similar in appearance ( front and rear lights )

It's looking Fantastic, I am glad that you are spending time to get the inside detail right. Personally I am not a fan of the exterior colour and it's too glossy but it's your toy.

Keep up the good work.

Jon

The paint is my one regret I went two pack and the guy in the shop put in extra to dull it. I hope in time that it will lose that look or I may cam it up.

Been overseas on holidays and busy with other things since I have been back. Here are a few containers I collected over the years for this project. Two Five Litre Trinkwasser containers and a Twenty Litre Wasser container. Two Twenty Litre Fuel containers Im repainting as one was blue and the other was covered in surface rust.

I agree. Nothing wrong with the original dunkel gelb paint on that Ambi Budd can outside of a little rust that could have been gently cleaned up.

I think if you re read his post he has not repainted the 20 litre water container, he has repainted the two 20 litre fuel cans as one was a rust finish and the other and already be repainted.

Guys thanks for comments. The water containers are safe there was no way I was painting them. The fuel cans, one was blue and the other was mostly rusty with hardly any original paint.
Cheers Karl
