Mauro- Thanks for taking a look. Remember it was your references that helped me get both the BTR and figure looking right. Dylan- Too kind mate> !

Well Karl,looking at references is useful if someone can use them...otherwise they will be pointless. You've used them in a stunning way great work indeed

Great build, Karl! The weathering is very convincing and gives the "feel" of Chechenya. Thanks for sharing

How did ya do the worn areas around the turret? I have a Skif MT-LB on the way, and would like to try to try this look. The red, rusty areas ? Jeff

Actually thats supposed to be mud, dirt and dust ! Looking at it now it does appear a kind of rusty, must be the lighting I was using. Anyway, thats just pigments over some painted scratches- use a rust colored pigment and you should get a similar effect.

Thanks! I really need to stock up on pigments...
