Thanks. Trying my best. [smile]

I'm thinking whether to open the engine compartment or not.
Also I'm wondering about making some kind of a small diorama for the model and searching for some inspirations.

Almost every thing is assembled and now I'm working on the base coat.

Looking great!

Wish I had the balls (and skills) to attempt armour, looks so much more complicated than aircraft.

Have a go, way less complicated than aircraft (though a lot more wheels involved) usually involves less filling and rescribing.

I think it's more about getting the weathering looking more realistic on armour. I'm getting more adventurous with chipping and wear on AC components so possibly armour could be in my future

Toki's right. [smile]

In armor you can hide almost all imperfections with good weathering. On the other hand, aircrafts have much more subtle weathering - they are usually maintained better.

Try both and have fun.

After my long break from modeling I've made an aircraft, a tank and an ifv so far. When I saw the GB I decided to enter with this truck. I've got one aircraft and one tank im my stash now and I'm planning on adding a transporter truck and a helicopter. I like to try and learn new things.

A small photo update.
Working on the base paint layer.
I've already added here and there some filters and oils to blend everthing - still work in progress.

Thanks. [smile]

The bonnet was done as follows:
1) a coat of primer - grey by ammo
2) after 5 minutes when the primer layer is touch dry there goes the rust layer (using vallejo paints): model air burnt umber, a little model air rust, and panzer aces light rust thinned down with airbrush cleaner - everything nicely blended.
3) rust dots were made with thinned down panzer aces light rust with very low pressure 2-4psi - when airbrush starts spitting.
4) left everything to cure - 24h 
5) one coat of unthinned chipping medium from vallejo - ore medium in the center and less towards the edges. It was done with low pressure, so that little dropplets formed on the surface.
6) immediately after that a base paint was applied - model air medium green. The chipping medium was not wet but tacky and I guess it was still wet inside the heavier dropplets. Thanks to that there is this cracked textures on the bonnet.
7) 2-3 hours curing time
8) a coat of vallejo gloss varnish 
9) 24h curing time
10) blending with oils (ammo oilbrusher): yellow, ochre, dark blue, dark earth and ammo green for grey green filter

Now I applied washes and waiting for them to cure to continue.

I've also got a bottle of vallejo crackle medium on my shelf. I haven't tried it yet for this purpose but I've seen some applications. It allows to create much bigger cracks - it's commonly used to create desert ground.

Here's a photo update to show my progress.

I've assembled almost everything and done some weathering, however much more to come. Moreover I've starteg working on the base. Now photos show only the bare ground. I'm going to plant some grass, tuffs, bushes and add some mud.
