M-ATV Panda 1/35

This is the first armor model I have finished in many, MANY years.

I have found myself fascinated by the current crop of "MRAP" military vehicles, and plan to build a collection of as many of them as I can find decent kits for (so far this one, the Max-Pro, Buffalo, and Cougar). We'll see how it goes....one thing I can say is that I mixed up a very large bottle full of that weird desert tan color that no one seems to sell a perfect match for.

I thought this M-ATV would be a simple build but it took me a very long time to finish. I tried to restrain myself on the weathering (hard for me) because there are ample internet photos of these vehicles and they always seem to be in very good repair...just dusty at most pretty much. I guess it is the nature of their use in "limited" conflicts, and also because they are still relatively new vehicles. So I tried to make the model look "dusty"...and avoided other weathering. I am satisfied with the result.

Thanks for looking!

To post an image of your models, you will first need to find somewhere to host your photos on the Internet. Your ISP will often give you a limited amount of free web storage, and other online photo storage is also available.

To post a link or an image, simply type in the URL (web address) of the destination page or image. The URL will appear as a link (for an HTML link) or an image (if you link direct to a .jpg file) when posted. You can use the Preview facility to see how your message looks before posting to Plastic Pix.

Please try to keep image sizes to 800 pixels wide or less, as larger sizes will be too big to fit on many computer screens. Also, file sizes should be kept to around 100kb or less, otherwise download may be very slow.
