It wasn't too long ago at my local model club that l was actually
trying to sell this kit without any takers.
At the end of the meeting the next
comp theme was announced, Things that Float. Well what do you know,
all these ideas went through my head and when l got home l started
to build it, and this is the end result.
The kit is from Dragon and is
quite a basic one to construct, it was all the extras on it that
took a little longer. These were Figures from Warrior, Verlinden and
Legends. Hornet Heads, Verlinden Backpacks and accessories, Eduard
etch ammunition belts and a little scratch building to enhance some
of the more basic details.
The boat was painted with Tamiya
Acrylic paints through my trusty Aztek A470 and the figures were
hand painted with a mixture of Tamiya, Vallejo and Citadel Paints.
Weathering was achieved using
Diluted colours through the airbrush and Mig pigments.
l am very happy with the end
result and hope you enjoy it as well.
