Cool damage effects on the car! But, wouldn't 007 have raised the rear shield to prevent bullet holes on the back window?
Interesting damage effects
Very creative, well done.
Thanks all 😊
@starbase101 had Q fitted the rear shield to this 2020s model, yes I'm sure he would have raised it. Alas, this later incarnation of 007's DB5 had no shield 🤦♂️ Apart from the uprated guns and bulletproof glass, we don't get to see if it had any other gadgets. I'm tempted to make his 1960s version now 😃
Recently saw Spectre, and James' 21st century Aston Martin also didn't have a rear window shield. Besides the bullet proof glass, it must have been armored in some way, because it was sprayed throughly with automatic weapons fire, but continued to move under its own power.
Indeed AJ .. when folk get to see No Time To Die, my model here will also make sense 😊
Bond movies past Sean Connery and Roger Moore just aren't the same for me, sorry. That's not to mean your build is any less, it looks great. Just saying I prefer the classic films with John Barry music.
Very nice, having just seen the movie I appreciate your work even more. Well done
Very creative, I love it! 🙂 And now a Martini please!
Thanks all 🙏🍸
Overall a round thing, well done 👍

👍; but for my taste to "dirty" 😉
Thanks Thomas, I know what you mean re your "dirty" comment. There are a number a schools on this these days, and I have seen much debate over this 'new to me' art of pre-shading, oils and weathering. I recently completed an intentionally dirty scene with a Hellcat Tank Destroyer on a muddy track and was told is was not dirty enough! And when I look back at what I was building 12 to 18 moths ago, I was hardly weathering anything, but may be for a light bit of exhaust staining, my Spitfires were show room ready 😆
With this transporter and bulldozer, I wanted to portray them as 'combat hardened'. The environment, rightly or wrongly, I felt would be thick with smoke and soot from burning oil wells and this combo of transporter and bulldozer have had a tough time of it and may be are both on there way to the guys with the power washers for a bit of a clean. 😉
Archive photos I saw of vehicles of the time were either pristine or quite dirty. Some transporters I found were also either still camouflaged green and brown or hastily repainted in desert yellow, and in the latter example, would probably have looked dirty before even seeing action.
Beauty as always, will be in the eye of the beholder 😊
Super small scale build!

Nice Dio, & Figure painting 👍
Thanks Rui. For my first 1:35 scale kit, it was fun. Looking forward to doing more of them now.
I'm liking this little snapshot, plenty going on. It would be nice to see some of that mud splashed up onto the vehicles 😉
Really like it, nice build 👍
Very well planned scenery here! 👍
Thanks guys. And Bruce, I did think that but didn't want to make too much of a mess of it 😂
Also, in the film, the tanks are oh too clean so I was somewhat influenced by that. 🤦♂️
No worries, Jonathan, I'm enjoying the goings on you have portrayed 👍

My first attempt at rigging completed ?
We are waiting for photos, then 😉
Thanks Mark and Robert, some photos loaded ?
What rigging did you use Jonathan.
David, I returned to my childhood and stretched sprue over a candle.
Aah the fond memories of heated plastic.LOL
I need to sort those wheels … the axle was not long enough making me think the wheels should be at an angle

A surprisingly excellent kit from Airfix with so many options
Completed as the Red Pelicans aerobatic team, a predecessor to the Red Arrows.
Completed as the Black Arrows aerobatic team … a predecessor to the Red Arrows
An awful kit, but surprisingly fun to build ?♂️
I'm going to be building this as another HAS.2 Sea King with 824 NAS which served in the 1982 Falklands War
