Hey

The dingo is indeed the (old) Tamiya kit. The kit is easy to built so the main challenge is the painting and weathering. I think I managed well. The figure is one of the Tamiya figures that come with their Churchill tank.

Hey

I have good hope for the base...I decided to change it to a easier base so I have some more time to get everything I need.

Cheers,
Martin

I really like the look of both those vehicles. The bren guns are a nice touch. I have the same Ultracast Brit driver for one of my jeeps

Hey

Figures still are a problem. I don't like painting them enough to learn how to do this really good, with shadows, highlighting etc. When I paint a figure I like to see it finished ASAP :-)

Looking good Martin,

the weathering on both vehicles are great!

Why not give the figures faces? paint eyes, mouth etc

I did painted the eyes!

I tried the mouth but it looked like they used lipstick :-)

Any tips on how to blend in the lips a bit with the rest of the face?

Thanks,
Martin
