The build looks great, though I do think that weathering was overdone, looks like it was just painted a brown color to be quite honest. I can hardly see the base coat, with all the rain in Vietnam I'm guessing it would wash most of that stuff on the sides off. -Shain

Not rusty, dusty! Anyway, it's true the pics don't show a lot of the base colour. In real you can see the OD a bit better but well, I don't have no proffesional photo studio and proffesional camera so I was happy with these pics. Also I think it's a matter of taste. One says it's overdone, the other likes it. Personally, I agree it's pretty heavy weathered, but well, it's a recovery vehicle and I wanted to give it the look of a real workhorse. And I just had a lot of fun using pastels for the first time, lol :-) Cheers, Martin
