Tamiya GMC 'Deuce'
This project sort of developed as it went along; it started off as a straightforward build of the truck until it became a 'bounty hunter/souvenir collector' vignette. Lots of aftermarket and spares box items, the 109 rudder was from a scrapped Revell 1/32 kit.
Oh man... this is fantastic.... amazing!
Nice job mate love it, this is a great kit to build and so many extras to go with it
Wooow, Mike you are full of surprises! What a great looking truck, so you do more than just wingy things 🙂
I just love this one!
Thanks guys! @Aghis I haven't done much armour, I think this was the third or fourth I built, but I'm getting into it again. Just working on a Tamiya Gama Goat right now, it's great fun 👍
👍 Nice work
I like it very much. Good work.
Smooth weathering, looks beautiful, Mike 👍
one of my favorite truck, painted absolutely amazing and great weathering
👍 Nice work
Can't stop looking at it....
How did you make these fantastic shades and color modulation??
And those rims!
My apologies in advance, I will have to copy you for my White Scout Car even though I know it won't be like this truck.... 🙁
Amazing, Mike! The finish is just superb!!!👍
Convincing in every single detail - and there are lots of details!!!
Looks really great! 👍
I think you can call this a masterpiece
And I like that doggy... 🙂
Nice building Mike, and the idea with the tail end of a plane looks good. But why don´t you give the GI a patch on his arm?
Masterly, a joy to look at . 👍
Great build Mike some sweet weathering there
Thanks again guys! @Arne That's a good idea, where would I find info on such things?
Hi Mike, you can look at Archer Dry Transfers. There you can find a lot of rank insignias. I would say, the GI is a Master Sergeant or Technical Sergeant. Look at this, for example: https://www.michtoy.com/item-FER-G35017-US_Rank_Insignia_World_War_II_Vietnam_Lower_Ranks.html
Awesome, thanks for that info Arne 🙂
No pleasure, Mike
I mean My pleasure.... It is early in the morning....
