Out of box, aftermarket and scratch built all allowed. 3D printed items are also allowed but must be totally created by you, not edited from someone else’s work or had elements imported. No partially started kits or work allowed. Entrants must have been be KM members for at least 2 months. Normal vetting for any cynical entries as usual.

Hey Xtr3meNZer I thought of trying salt effect but might be a bit fiddly so will try using paint for chipping rust etc. Hope to try some washes too. Will see how far I get by Friday.

So I layed down a browny green mix and then a bluey grey for camo pattern. And have started applying some decals...

Tidying up edges with some plaster of paris. Will probably paint it a blacky brown colour...

Cheers all. Tonight busy packing for a few days down south. Flying tomorrow to bike Otago Rail Trail for a few days.
So this is about as far as I'll get by end date (tomorrow).
I have learned a lot of new techniques on this project e.g. water, rocks, ground work, building and weathering mecha, working with resin etc.
I'm looking forward to chipping away and getting it finished over next while.

(Tree that was made prior to build dates included just for effect)










And this is the SAFS "Messiah" Version ;)
