hi guys have decided to take the plunge and join in this group build. i am doing the Italeri 1/35 Volkswagen Typ 87. it has a choice of 4 colour schemes Desert Afrika Corps, Luftwaffe Black/Grey, Ivory for the German Office of Colonial police and Dark green for the British Army 1946. the kit also comes with 6 Afrika Corps figures and 2 different sets of wheels so will have to decide early which scheme to do.
here is the Box Art and a pic of the sprues.

Nice leather look on the seats. How did you achieve that Stephen?
