Good job. Unusual camouflage - do you have any pictures of it or did you go with what looked good?

Very nice dusty suspension.

Thanks for sharing

Hi Mike,
Once again a very nice finish.
Two things,
1 The national insignia looks too clean for the vehicle.
2 Perhaps a touch of black for the inside the exhaust.
I'd go .

Mike,

Looks good. I like it. Ditto what Joe said. It does look like the national insignia was added after weathering...

OK The insignia look too clean . It just looks that way in the photos. They're not as weathered as the bottom of the vehicle but then again neither are the areas of the superstructure they're on. Only the lower sections are weathered due to rain washing the sides down. The vehicle was painted, gloss coated, the markings were applied-then the weathering was done. There is a coat of dust, some streaking on the crosses it just doesn't show up in the photos. You're right about the exhaust-things slip away occasionally. No photos just my scheme. Thanks guys

Mike

Nice Job Mike
I like these Unusual subjects, and the Unusual camouflage
Ditto what the others say about the markings and the zorst,also the tracks,the top runs look to be "floating" over the return rollers,are they indys or the rubber band type? you could try gently warming them with a hair dryer and holding them down while they cool
good luck in the comp

They're rubber band tracks and as they come are way too big. These have been shortened 2 links. Aftermarket tracks would be best.

Another great build Mike, your camo looks excellent, and the dusty running gear is spot on.

Good luck in the contest.
