Beefy - saw one of these at Telford yesterday, nicely done.  I'd never seen one in the flesh before.

Garish colurs but very fine.

I was surprised how big it was

Good haul there Rob that is another reminder to get my finger out with mine  :whistle:

 

Any how construction is all done and started with some paint on the jolly green giant reminds me of Martian  🛸

Primer from rattle can and then hull red then the green after masking lower hull

While that was drying added some details to the shermans applique armour and will be adding some cargo to the trucks I know I said out of the box but they needed it honest  :wicked:

Looking great and as you say, you need to add cargo to those trucks, don't think they would've wasted the space.

Well thanks for dropping buy Rob and Stuart and all the others looking over the jolly green giant

 

cracking on with the paint scheme was not happy with the olive drab the instructions have you go for so repainted with a dark green instead nearly ready for decals.

Beefy nice work on that paint job - is that "scalloping" freehand?

Great Colours  :goodjob:

Rob

Hi Rob I airbrushed the main patterns and then did the hard edge with a hairy stick freehand

Lovely job on the hull, looks smart. What happens with the deck and stuff.

 

Stuart

Stuart the decking will be as you see it but the main cargo deck will have a lot of hard weathering done to it and the hull will get some light fading work done

As you can see my freehand painting is not that neat close up but the weathering will hide that  :whistle:

Also added the ID numbers

And base coat on the Vehicles will be using the sponge to add the cargo load to the trucks this will be covered in tissue paper
