Been a quick holiday build this one, mostly goes together like a dream, with some filling on big curves!

Will see about getting some paint on it

Okay I decided to go a bit mad on this one and paint a far more aggressive fade than I have ever done before.. took a really quite light mid grey, thinned more than usual then went to town.

This is followed by an oil-wash/pin with mig oilbrushers dark brown.

I'm totally happy with the basic tone of it now, just got to go to town with detailing and weathering!

Started some fairly heavy chipping and weathering on the base. These things had a long and rough life, film of similiar pieces shows them looking a complete mess!

SWEET AS!!! That's impressive weathering, not over the top, but it's clearly been out there awhile.
