Nice work.
Interesting camo, where did you find it because I have same kit awaiting for paint and all I could find are sand and three colour scheme.

However there are some differences in the turret configuration for the UAE version compared to the SADF one.

The camo is based almost entirely on this image:



As stated above, there are differences in the turret that can be seen in this photo. I liked the camo better than the 3 tone, or the sand base so went with this one.

What a cool-looking combat vehicle! Reminds me of something from "Aliens" it's that futuristic. Love the paint & weathering!

Wow. Fascinating subject, extremely well rendered! Well done!!

You think this looks SciFi? Check out the proposed G6 Marksman!!
I'd definitely pick up a 35th model of that!!
