Hi guys, I haven't been around much lately. Hopefully I'm back in full flight now.
This is my first completed kit in a few months.
Finished using the Eduard PE set and some Value Gear stowage. The 40mm ammo and crates are from Bronco.
Went together very nicely. Just had to drill out the ends of the main guns and the replacement guns on the left fender. I also scratchbuilt the small exhaust on the rear right fender.
Airbrushed using Tamiya paints and weathered with MiG powders.

That's a nice coat of RVN dust on it, looks very good as does the highlighting of details and things.

May be optical illusion, but it seems the two gun barrels are not quite parallel.

Looks great, and very well weathered too. Love it.

I agree Jratz, they do look a bit warped. The barrels and receivers are molded as one piece. The receivers went together nicely so I'm guessing the plastic is a bit bendy ;-)

Thanks for the kind comments guys.

You've been away too long, Paddy! It's great to see one of your masterpieces again, bendy plastic barrels or not :grin:

Excellent work! The rust patches are 'spot' on!

That is supremely cool! The red dirt weathering really captures the Vietnam AFV look.
