Awesome gun truck with i.e.d. armor!

Phantastic model, Luis!👍 Should be presented on a base, IMHO.

Hey Ulf!I thought the same, but the guy who asked for it didnt wanted a base, so I delivered as is. Thank you for your comment!

Hi Rui! Thank you so much! I really enjoy giving hard weathering on the models, i like the idea of pushing those militar machines to their edge. Still learning, but a lot of enjoying. thanks mate!

Hi James! thank you so much! The fit was ok, the only thing I found difficult was the exhaust, because didnt want to fit, and one inaccuracy I found, was the support for the spare tire, which almost cover the diesel intake; i searched online and i saw these real trucks and they have the diesel intake unobstructed. Im not as skilled as a lot of mates here, so i decided to let that part as is. Still, this was a very fun kit to build. cheers!!!

Luis, you wrote "A fun kit to build"
Is the truck easy to build for a rookie?

Hi Luis,
great build. But why are have your figures this glossy finish?

I find that when I take photos of my dioramas, the figures clothing often displays a shine that isn't really visible in real life. Many times, I really notice it when I've used oils. A couple of light coats of Matt varnish helps, but again sometimes not noticeable unless you snap a pic. Also, remember that helmets will have a sheen as they are metal. I always use Matt varnish over the decals, so a light coat on fabrics helps. I have noticed that in my galleries, many of my figures have a sheen, but too lazy to go back and Matt them.😉 Keep up the great work Luis!

Hi Kevin,
thanks for the answer. I will have an eye on this with my figures....

Hey Norbert, Yes, Kevin is right, sometimes just the light makes some parts to be glossy. Anyway, using the coat varnish is a good idea. Will try to use it on those cases. Thanks Kevin and Norbert!
