Hi All,

 

Here's the Academy Gulf War Warrior which I've marked up as a Cheshire Regiment UN vehicle in Bosnia using the excellent Star decals set.

 

The kit is a challenge with no PE,clear parts or individual link tracks. Lots of release marks including one on the front face of all of the turret vision blocks.

 

I don' t think its that accurate as a Gulf War example so this will be way off for detail fans.

 

The mud was to try and disguise the poor rubber band tracks.

 

I did find an ABER barrel which is a huge improvement over the kit one.

 

Usual C&C Welcome.

 

Regards

 

David

Thats a really nice job there, you got that nice and dirty just where it counts.

 

The only issue i would ahve is that Star seems to have got the vehicle type wrong. 0B should be the company commanders vehiles and so should be a 511, but thats their error.

Another great Warrior. Nice finish with the UN scheme, and well weathered.

Ah, I see re the OB markings. I take it 511 is the command version?

you do get two other decal options - just liked the look of that one

Yes, thats correct. There are no kits on the market of a 511, only a conversion set. I have just finished building the same kit with the conversion.

 

I have seen the Star decal sets, i know what you mean.

Excellent rendition of one of the most attractive contemporary AFVs IMHO.

 

I remember that Balkans mud well !

 

Well Done, Sir
