These came out great Pete. Very nice. I like the lightly weathered look. The Trumpeter launcher and truck are definitely better than the Dragon ones All the cabling looks great too. I don't feel like putting all that work into my launcher though.

I completely agree on the weathering. Never was a fan of the artistic interpretation of rust, etc that some espouse. Very nicely done!

I thought I saw this at ModelFiesta, Pete. I guess I did. Excellent work and I am glad you painted it like it would really look. We just recently got one for display at the Air Defense Artillery Museum where I did a federal internship when I was at the Fort Sill WTU. I hate seeing models that are all chipped up and dirty when those of us Vets know that we'd catch all kinds of hell from our chain of command for our equipment not being squared away.

Great build, it looks great. Love the desert tan tube to break up the camo a little.

Thanks for sharing
