Finally got some pics of my first attempt at building an armour model (thanks to tomcat31 for taking the pics), still got quite a bit of work to do on it though. This was also my first attempt at spraying camoflage. Comments welcome.

On the gun control wheels.

I am guessing that you are painting the tools as if they were not on the vehicle when the camo was painted. If this is a correct guess, then the green should also be under the tools.

Very well built model. Keep us updated.

Looks great for being your 1st AFV! Apply some weathering and it will even look better!

Thanks for the comments im just waiting for some wethering filters i sent off for to arrive and hopeful this weekend i'll be able to get some of the wethering done and carry on with finishing the interior off but that depends as i've been asked to do a figure for a magazine and it needs to be finished by the end of the month Once the kit's ready for decaling i plan to make a start on the figures P.S the shade of red i used was Tamiya Red Brown (XF-64)

Gday Sam
Sure, it's German, but hey what a great job! And a first shot at it no less!
So are figures your main area of expertise?
Cheers

Hi Brad.
Thanks for the comment. I started off with aircraft and three years ago i bought myself a vinyl japenese anime figure and i really enjoyed building it and ever since then alongside doing aircraft i do japenese anime figures, sci-fi figures and bust's both resin and vinyl ones. Two of my anime figures have been featured in magazines aswell a couple of aircraft that i was asked to build for a magazine. Think my favourite figure i have done so far is dracula 'love never dies' which my boyfriend (tomcat31) bought me for christmas two years ago.

Ah I see!
This has jogged one's memory (not easy to do!) and I now recall I have a resin anime figure stashed somewhere I picked up cheap a few years back... Iria? Iriya? Irya? Summin like that... She has this dark blue body suit and this white shoulder armour etc and a bloody big gun I think... Have to explore the storage :-)

I've seen that kit a few times and it looks when built. I'll have to get a couple of my anime kit photos onto my workbench/ gallery I think they're might be one of yuna already on it.

Thank you for all the comments about the wespe and once I get some more done to it i'll post some new pics it's going better than I first thought it would.
