The subject of this group build is to take a model off your shelf that's been sitting there unfinished and finish it.
To start post photos of your model(s) in it's current state with a quick blurb of what version you were building and why it ended up abandoned. Then blog and post photos of you finishing it!
Extra kudos the older it is.

Now all you need is a hotbox with breakfast sitting in the sidecar.

And concentrate on painting figures.

That just looks great. I really like the idea of the guy at the door stretching ready for breakfast.

Is the concrete painted or just very dark? I ask because I don't know if they painted over raw concrete, unless, of course, they were doing camouflages. I'd lighten the concrete a little to show age, but leave a painted surface as is... if that makes any sense. Amazing stuff. Don't forget any motor bike tracks you'd see behind the vehicle.

I wondered that after my post, whether the computer screen was messing about with the colour. Makes sense. Add some bird poo somewhere. Bl**dy seagulls!!!

Love it. The whole lot works well, I especially like the vegetation. Where is the rider's helmet I would expect to see it somewhere?

Finished (for now!) build thread, with 2 hours to go on the build time!

Finished Build

At some point I will be back to this to add another figure, some mounted binoculars and a few other things, but this will for sure do for now.

Thanks for following along.
