Oh cool! It's always nice to see something a little different.

Nice work!

Sharp build, I remember these from my time in the Corps (USMC). Always thought they looked to funny to be useful, but they were a great help>

Nice build.  The paint is just beautiful.  Have the kit in the stash and looking at the camo scheme on the painting guide, it looked to be a real bear.

Thanks goldhammer, I just got three colours out and brushed on at random, the white was a new acrylic paint pen!

Thanks John, I'm always reluctant to work on figures having had no real experience of them. But to my surprise the two supplied with this kit are so well made, with the torso, head,arms, helmet and legs with the driver and the head, helmet,  torso with legs, both arms and rifle,( you just need to find a thin strip of evergreen for the strap) So therefore easy to stance, I painted them on the sprue., cut them off and stuck them together as per instructions, as the driver goes in holding the steering wheel, for example.

Superb kit alround!

Looks like a solid build overall.  Figures came out nice.  The paint scheme looks OK, but is a little off from MERDC that it is supposed to represent; too many fine lines, as opposed to less, softer sprays of color.

Nice work. Immediately took me back to Germany from '71 to '80. 'Convoy Follows' with Gamma Goats, M151 Mutts, and occassionaly M-109s or M113s along the autobahn. Maintenance nightmare is what I always heard.

Dont sweat the MERDC. Personally I like what you did and it's a very tough pattern to spray much less brush on. I knew right away what I was looking it in terms of the pattern.

Nice work on the figures and European diorama.

Thanks guys, yes my camo painting is very rare as I don't build military stuff normally and sticking to a particular pattern is difficult as I go off at a tanget!

But at 70 I am still learning (only after 60+ years of building).
