    Looking good Alex, love the subtle weathering, maybe just a little oil stains on the bonnet might add some more interesting features buddy, but I guess you are still inprogress ... is this another Russian Civil War project or Colonial Italian?

    I really like these civilian like trucks turned to Armoured trucks, the forrunners of MadMax Laughing I am very tempted for the Roden Royce, especially the new WW2 version ...

    it is looking really great Alex, the rusting inside the turret is absolutely real. It looks like one big, ghastly coffin with a lot of nails in it but you are doing a great job as usual.

    YOU ARE SO RIGHT IVAN
    EVEN A SINGLE FIGURE WOULD GIVE PERSPECTIVE TO A VEHICLE. THE PROBLEM IS, IT SEEMS THAT I NO LONGER HAVE THE PATIENCE OR KNACK TO PAINT A FIGURE.. PITY.

    can't you find some volunteer to paint one for you? i can do it but my figure paitning is very limited. i just try to copy our great figure painters. i also still paint in oils and they seem to be on the way out although Oliver paints lovely figers and he still uses oils too!!

    Alex, YOU KNOW that I WOULD GLADLY (I would be HONOURED to say the least) PAINT a FIGURE with/for you. Remember the proposed Crimean War photographic wagon ?????

    So if you're not that tight to display it on a base, find the appropriate figure to fit it on the base and I would paint whatever mate Laughing

    Brian, on the contrary of what you might think, quite a FEW top painters paint entirely in Oils Laughing Hardy Tempest amongst the foreigners who's a member of this forum of ours Laughing
