Hi Ken and Darren,

Thanks for looking in guys and the comments. I think MiniArt have a cracking little kit here, looking forward to doing a desert version and the further releases.

This is one great built! The olive drab looks good. Did you mix it yourself or is it out of the bottle. Great photography too. Congratulations.

Hi Noli,

The colour was a home mix, but don't ask me exactly what as it evolved!

Hi Marcus,

Thanks, glad you like it, it a grand wee kit.
