HI

 

Due to lockdown, I thought I'd restart modelling - first time in about 20 years. Settled on the HobbyBoss WMIK Landrover. Let me know your thoughts - but be gentle!

I added various bergans and daysacs from other kits - painted a mix of DPM and MTP

Pleased with the MTP on the daysac and webbing but on the figures I think I made the base coat a bit too green.

Various strapping made from painted masking tape.

The kit puts the spare tyre on the bonnet but moved it to the roll cage and made a kit basket out of plastic covered wire. Also used a lot of reference images and so created hessian covers for the headlamps and a towing strop wrapped around the bumper. Not too good with the old paint chipping but added some chips showing the original green underneath the sand.

Typically out of focus but probably one of the most pleasing elements was making the cam net. Adapted something I found on another forum and painted tissue paper with a mix of paint and PVA glue, then had a u-shaped artists lino cutting tool and made hundreds of interlinked cuts. These can then be teased out and it's the most realistic cam net I've seen - if I say so myself!

Nice work, cam nets have worked out rather well haven't they.

Excellent job. If you have an airbrush, maybe give the whole thing, blokes included, a very dilute spray with buff or sand to get that all over dusty look?

Cheers Darryl - it took a long time but I think it's worth the effort. Better than just netting with flock glued to it!

Thanks Ian - never got on with airbrushes unfortunately - have tried but just can't get to grips with them, so everything is hand painted
