Great job, never tried to do a white AFV (other than whitewash). 


I think the white is like a hunter wearing blaze orange- it's shorthand for 'DON'T SHOOT ME'. 


 The White UN stuff pretty much is exactly that. Of course the warring factions have to respect those rules, and the forces deployed have some sort of back up and the folks in charge willing to use that back up rapidly if need be. If they dilly dally and deliberate, thats one reason those ops can go sideways in a real hurry.


Yup. The trouble is, the warring factions in ex Yugoslavia had little respect for UN as they were poorly backed up by force.

Stowage and a final clear coat is on and I am going to call this one done. It was super fun build and I think the black on white scheme looks good.




Well done, very realistic Yes

It is a great job! Better paint job on it than on the only time I ever saw a UN white vehicle in person. It was not painted well.

I like it very much. I think you might want to weather the 782 gear a little more. Just my 2 cents. All in all very well done.

Nice finish on this one. It's kinda funny how dirty those pristine white UN vehicles look after just a short patrol. Most places where they go are not well paved and mud or dust is ever present.

She's a dirty girl for sure.  The UN livery is probably my favorite for this vehicle 


Oh come on now Chad, a 113 looks best in one of its many MERDC schemes.


I definitely can't argue with that!
