Thanks for posting them. This was from one of last fall's Dragon Model of the Month entries. I'm glad you got them posted up.

Gino, real nice job on the slat. I am doing one right now myself. Slow going. What did you use for the rear roof glass set up? Did you scratch that or source it from somewhere? I will be doing a similar model in the future with the humvee glass all around the roof.

Thanks guys. It was a fun build. I like adding all the little details too, it brings it to life.

Bob: I scratched the rear armored glass panel. I used HMMWV windshield glass and built the frame from Evergreen "L" beam and sheet styrene.

Great work Gino..your builds always inspire me to try different techniques.
did you use gauze for the camo nets?

Hi Jeff. I used cheese cloth for the nets, soaked in cuban coffee (strong, dark stuff) to stain it the tan color. I think it came out pretty well.

Gino,

Excellent job and nice details. The trash around parameter is a nice touch.
