@Spanjaard, James, Peter, Seb, Michael and Robert thank you for your positive words, I do not always have time for modeling. The dio is still under construction, I am waiting for my order of a barrier set from Meng. I have done all my weathering with AMMO products from Mig Jimenez and am satisfied with it ... what is your experience with this?

@Robert Hall...that an old US armor guy (possible 19B ...?) compliments me with the fine detail, that's cool to hear! I am still in the service as a 11M.

Thanks Spanjaard, James, Peter, Thomas and Jean-Michel... such positive words are definitely a motivation boost to make a dio more often, appreciate that. @Robert, send you a PM...!

Hey Jos, for what it's worth , most like dio's because they tell a story. Plus you get to show off your skills and imagination! Again, Well done! Hope to see more of your work.

@Timothy... I love modern armor and infantry in operational deployment. What is difficult to paint are the modern camouflage combat uniforms. My preference is for modern fighter planes, but I will definitely make more Dio's!
@ Seb...thx man, appriciate!

Jos I know what you mean! I did some modern uniforms on my apache dio. Donald Dickson is very good at modern planes, look him up, a great guy as well as ex-air force. I'm sure there are others as well to give you ideas.

FYI American Digital Camo Uniforms were not mandatory until October of 2006, so if your Dio is set before that time, the standard DCU and BDU uniforms are acceptable for the U.S. ARMY projects.

Interesting, thanks for the info !

Thanks Timothy, I looked at him for a moment, cool models...! @Robert, I know this, but I felt like using the UCP ... it was also very much the challenge to do so :)
