Pulled this out of ModelAir display case and did some corrections/tidy up. When I built this, my knowledge of armour wasn't the greatest, but after doing some research, there were some things that I wasn't happy with so decided to sort them out.

I removed the stowage bin from the right side and redid the stowage, removed the gun barrel and scratchbuilt a new one, added a barbed wire roll to the front, added a tint to the vision blocks, and then recreated a section of Iraqi highway with some beat up Jersey barriers.

Never took any before pics, but here is the finished result.

Thanks all. The base is the lid of an airtight coffee container my wife cracked so salvaged the lid, brushed it with Future/Klear, then found some appropriate grade wet n dry sandpaper, hit it with some MiG pigments and other weathering. Glued on the tank and barriers. QED.

BTW, I get caught sniffing it sometimes because it still smells of good coffee beans.
