Is this considered armor?? Confused

I really enjoyed this quick build! I might have went a little overboard on the dust effects but it is what it is!

Thanks for looking!

Excellent build!  Everything that you've done is stunning.  Your painting and figure work looks great.  I think that the weathering is just right from your dust effects to the dusty windshield  and to the rusty exhaust pipe.  Is there a plan for a diorama?

Well it is a 'softskin' but as it says up top Jeeps are welcome here so trucks fit right in! 

Looks fantastic to me! Great job on the constuction, the weathering, and the figure looks good too! Yes

Thank you for the kind words!

I have not done any dioramas before. I hope to start soon!

That looks awesome!  Even the driver looks great.  I wish I could get a build to look like that.

The mighty duece and a half.  I live in a small town outside of San Diego and from there's a guy that brings his out for cruise night.  Impressive.  As is your build.  Great expression on that figure - is that Tamiya?
