Hi,

my next model wil (finally) be the Bushmaster, i'm going to build the
vehicle i served on on my deployment, so it will be a dutch one.

so i need to scratch the whole dutch additions, lucky me i took al the details during my time over there, so it wasn't a real ploblem.




i didn't start on the kit itself yet, but i already noticed the kit is soft on details, some thing just need to be replaced.


the vehicle itself:

resurrecting this one from the dead

got some time on my hands to work on this.
i'm kinda disappointed with this kit, it's to soft on detail for me.
but i love to scratch build so it's wasn't a that big deal







the interior is also almost done building, don't have photo's of this right now, they will follow when it's done

No im not adding the RWS im going with the Mag58 as on my vehicle during my deployment.

@Ciro
I did sort of correct the anti slip, i stipled it with mr. Surfacer 500, since the overall pattern of it is quite correct of what i remember.

Very nice. Impressive work. This model is very different than the australian version. Did you used a walkaround for this ?

Yes, there are some different parts on the dutch version, i'm building the vehicle i served on over there, and made my own walkaround during that time, so i have quite enough information


P.s. Pierric, you did also a great job on your Bushmaster!!
