3 fingers of death

Recommended Posts

Hi

This is my first "armor" build. Trumpys SA-6 + friul track-links...

It is a very nice kit to build, I'm a complete newbie regarding this type of models, but it is a very nice pause from all the jets...

The only thing I noticed wrong, are the too long rockets, which had to be shortened...

It represents a Libyan Kub, left behin in Chad during Toyota wars. It lacks markings, I simply couldn't find a good reference with those, but also I saw many without...

Weathered with different pigments and washes...

Looks a lot better than anything I would be able to do with armor. Should the missiles be so pristine though?

Weathering on the armor looks very nice.

Thanks Bigasshammm

No I guess they shouldn't. On the ref photo I used they were white on white, but a little dirtier.

In my case the gloss I used on 'em prevented me from weathering 'em cause the dirt couldn't be fixated, so I thought of spraying some tamiya smoke for a quick solution...If I find the motivation to mess with it again of course...

cheers

Actually the Missiles should be clean, as they are not a permanent part of the tracked carrier, and once you fire them, you reload with a "New" Missile, unless this guy never see's any action.
