George, looks exceptional! Sometimes these older kits are more fun and turn out even better like yours! Keep it up!!! Aloha, Bill

A really good end result, particularly the excellent weathering effects that take it to the next level. Great job. Tnx for sharing.

Nice Job! Was this the Dragon #3521 kit? I was thinking about building this one for the AAA Campaign.

Hi all, thanks a loooooot for the encouragement, I really appreciate it. Yes, it was the old Dragon kit! I've got another one in my stash, finally I know why they were so cheap - somehow the dimensions don't feel right, at least compared to Meng's Shilka. Anyways, I'm glad that you like & that it was worth the effort. BTW, it's a Soviet vehicle that was deployed to Africa during the Ogaden war (I found pictures on the net).
