Hi all

just wanted to share a couple of pictures of the Iraq M915 Gun truck that I have been working on for the last couple of months. Just need to finish the figures and the base plus some storage items.













thanks for looking

cheers

Keith

Love the rust effects, how have you made that so realistic?? or is it metal you left outside?

Nice job
the rusted parts look really realistic, as said before, how did you paint them?

thanks

Hi guys

to answer the questions:-

yes this is the miniman factory kit (very nice resin kit if i may say so)

the rust is in fact painted as you will see when you see it in the flesh, I am sorry to say that the secret will be revealed once the article for this build is published in the magazine.

again guys thanks for the comments, but i still have the base and figures to finish

cheers
