I'm oh so close to being done!

Boy it's been a long time since I posted anything, but life's priorities get in the way as usual. Nothing to complain about though, a month in New Zealand, lots of work, yada, yada, yada...

Anyway, I'm so close to being done I can taste it. I wasn't happy with the weathering, so I decided to try something new, streaking the model with various shades of heavily diluted Tamiya Acrylic. I still need to do a pin wash in a few areas to make some of the details pop a little more. The figures were finished, so I added them in for the picture to see how they'd look, and I'm very happy with them if I do say so myself, my best effort yet! I did manage to break off the coaxial machine gun. I'm turning some evergreen rod in my Dremel mini-mite to replace it. Now I just need to figure out how to do the distinctive antenna guard, and a few tine bits and I'm done!
