Stef, alex - thanks a lot

The road isn't painted, it's a piece of dark grey sandpaper with just a little bit of pigments here and there.

Awesome ! The piece of road is cool, the bitumen paint is very nice. Impressive level of details on the humvee.

I need a new jaw now, I dropped mine!
It was a great read and interesting to go through this. I have no clue about modern armor, so this build did get me introduced to it, simply amazing! I love the work with your AM parts, so smooth and clean!

Interior almost done, there will be one backpack in the trunk, and maybe some minor stowage:





Humvee joined with the SPARK (roof not glued):








Fitting with the rest on the vignette:







Unfortunately, I had to give up a figure sitting in a Humvee - I couldn't match him to a seat and opened door. Even remodeling would rather change anything - it would still look unnaturally. But there is a bright side of this situation - one ACUPAT less to paint

Front Duke antenna (rectangular) is a little bit improved - it was molded by Panda Models as completely flat at the backside.

I wouldn't call it 'a piece of art' at all, but thanks a lot for very kind words


Legend conversion has several quite big parts and as You know it very well - the bigger part is the more it can bend in molding process. I hope you manage to fix (or rebuild) these elements.

Wiring work is amazing on the roller, this humvee is a piece of art.

I have too a legend conversion for M1151 and in the box, there are several resin parts which have a lot of distorsions. I'm thinking to rebuilt them with plastic sheets.

i like what you're building especialy the level of detail you put in it


Thanks




The vignette:






I'm not completely happy, it has made me a little ugly prank, but I'll leave it... I know what to do better in the next one.

I didn't like plain CROWS monitor, so I've printed markings:

Bottom and 'legs' will be improved of course.

1 grosz is a Polish 1 'cent', approximately 1.55 cm (~0.6'') diameter.

Well, race it might not be but a race you are putting for rest of us to catchup too... your skill level that is

Nice work brother, they both look awesome! I have 1/16 M-ATV and I want to put both of your above items on it. I have found a 1/16 boomerang antenna in that scale but no Crow set up. Guess, I'll have to get a 1/35 and try and copy it.

I'm painting almost every day, but usually it's only maybe half an hour with a brush. It's not a race Some elements are already ready, most interesting of them - Boomerang and CROWS:

Just catching up with your work as I've been out visiting Reno Air races. Your small rein bit is nice and I like the small round shockers. I bet those were bit of a challenge in this scale
