Minor areas need touching up, I want to add a more textured paint scheme for the canopy. Skills I hope to learn in time!

They look pretty damm fine to me  :thumb: .
Slight shade change on the canopy may have given it that textured look, i painted mine a different colour altogether :idea:

Nice build there, could be that some markings/insignia might set it off ...

Great builds, nice to see a truck instead of just things that blow other 'things' up!

It's a great build but would benefit from: brake lights, indicators etc painting and transfers applying.

Mark :)

The washes and staining work really well here Ron.  The final green on the body looks just right too.  :thumb:

I must try the staple trick too if I ever pick up one of these...

Ron, that is very good work with washes and details. I loved putting together the refueller. Maybe I'll get one of these to compliment it?

I was pleased with how lincolnlanc's staple trick worked out when I applied it to my refueller. It certainly is one of the most instancing transforming (and relatively simple) scratch mods I've come upon for a vehicle.

Nice work on all the others too.

It's home made etch.....See you've only got to touch a small scale vehicle and the AMS sets in!  :lol:

Great work guys.....Certainly gets my vote for most creative use of stationery supplies in modelmaking!  :thumb:

All the best
