  1. Great job. And nice to see something different.
  2. Nice build. You've done a great job with the stowage. Cheers, Nenad
  3. Nice work @dov . As other already suggested, this model definitely deserve some weathering to bring it to life. What I would do is keep it simple for start and just do two things: Tone it down a bit. It is very simple thing to do that makes model look much more realistic and to lose "toy look". I used two different approaches to do this. One is to mist the whole model with very diluted light paint (Tamiya buff for example). Just be careful not to overdo it (do it in few passes). Also, you can add more layers at the lower parts of the model, because that's where dust will accumulate more. The other approach I use is to mist pigments diluted in enamels, like this one: https://www.migjimenez.com/en/ammo-paints/154-light-dust.html It will produce similar result, but it is easier to control and to remove it with a brush dump in enamel spirit. After the step one, leave the model to dry for a day and add some pigments. For start, don't bother with pigment fixer, etc. Just rub them here and there with an old brush and blow off the excess. You can use two different pigments (lighter and darker) to add some variety, for example https://www.migjimenez.com/en/ammo-paints/170-ammo-pigment-europe-earth.html and https://www.migjimenez.com/en/ammo-paints/247-russian-earth.html. Of course, there are as many weathering approaches as there are modelers and for sure there's no the right one, and this is just an example how I stared with weathering. Cheers, Nenad
  4. Thank you. Thank you Wayne. I can only recommend this Gecko kit. It is really great. The only downside is some fiddly areas, such as the exhaust and tracks (although they look great). I have Bronco A13 (both Mk. I and Mk. II), but ofter reading some reviews, it looks like it has too many issues, so I am thinking to wait for Gecko to make one (hope they will). Although, your Bronco A13 looks great to my eye. I started working on Border Model Crusader Mk. III. Going super smoothly so far. Good kit. Thank you very much Gary for your kind words. Glad to hear that it inspired you.
  5. Very nice work. Especially the camouflage painting. Best, Nenad
  6. What a fantastic model. You did an incredible job with all these details. What do you use for rivets, bolts, etc? Or do you make them yourself? Cheers, Nenad
  7. Thank you Andrew. I have Gecko's A10 as well waiting to be build. Wish they'll make A13 sometime soon. Thank you. Thank you. I find early armor quite interesting, because there's many different designs, some of them being even crazy and bizarre
  8. Beautiful model Andrew. Painting and weathering is spot on. Wheels and wooden planks in particular turned out fantastic. Cheers, Nenad
  9. Nice job Maddoxx. Paint job looks great, it loos like you put a lot of effort in it. Cheers, Nenad
  10. Thank you for your kind words Ed. Thank you, Autle. Thank you, Homer. Thank you, Gaz. Thank you, Carius.
  11. Great work Alessandro. Figures in particular are fantastic. Will have to check your WIP, I have this one in my stash. Best, Nenad
  12. Thank you. Ohhh yes... I forgot the exhaust. Probably intentionally It is sooo fiddly, I think I spent half the time building the tank on this exhaust. Broke it few time, lost few pieces that I had to scratch build... Thank you. Thank you George. Thank you Davey. Thank you Ian. Thank you Francis. Yeah masking it was quite a headache. At least I learned from my previous Vickers Light Tank build to mask and paint the camo before attaching all the fiddly stuff, like exhaust, canister holders, etc. It helped a lot. It is quite expensive kit, but at least there's no need for any AM products. Especially concerning the track that are far better than AM choices. Thank you. Thank you mate. Thank you Dennis. Thank you Kristjan. Thank you Stuart. Thank you Milan. Thank you Bertie for your kind words, Thank you.
