This is finished. Overall a fun build. A few little niggling mistakes, including a silvered decal and some seams I should have filled. But okay for my first attempt at armour I reckon.

Nice work Grant, you did a cracking job there mate. Love the subtle weathering and in particular the tools.

Cheers Gary. I like the look of tools on armour models.

Nice build Grant :)

Looks really good for your first armour kit :woohoo:

Just a couple of things for me, the jerry cans at the rear would need some straps to secure them in place? Otherwise it looks as if they would fall out going over the first bump? The other is a little more mud up the back of the Stryker, it looks good on the sides, but you haven't carried it round to the rear?

You should post some pics of it in the members showcase section B)

It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

Whoops, there are PE straps with the kit but I forgot about them. I'll have to stick them on. :blush:

Cheers Andrew. :)

The handles were painted in Tamiya acrylic flat brown and then given a thick wash of Tamiya enamel buff. I hadn't actually tried to paint a wood finish before so this was just an experiment that worked okay.

Looking back at the pictures I really need to get a new camera. The Sony point and shoot I'm using just doesn't cut it. :dry:
