Wow, that is freaking awesome!

I hope the base will include a Mel Gibson/Mad Max figure to finish it out! Maybe a figure of that pilot that was in Road Warrior and Thunderdome!

OK, I know its slightly out of order but here is some more WIP in the Bronco.

 

First up, I got the nose wheel out of the way. this had some light chipping done with a sponge (but later I went a bit crazy and did a load more)! The wash is Alclad's new Hogwash (brilliant by the way).

Ready for paint! But I wanted to get some of the ancillary's out of the way first...

Next up was the top gunner's rig. This was primarily from the WMIK kit but I wanted a rusted look for the gun mount but also wanted it to look like the gun deck thing had been taken from a ground vehicle.

 

So, first up the parts had a coat of Tamiya Red Brown mixed with a touch of black.

Next up a few light coats of Ammo of Mig Scratch Effects

Dealing with the turret ring first, some RLM 75 was sprayed on then chipped.

Chipping was enhanced using the sponge technique.

Yet more chipping fluid, XF-64 (a more rusty tone) and chips!

Now a mix of Rust Effects and Pigments was flicked onto the parts.

Then a pin wash, in this case Ammo of Mig's Track Wash.

The finished turret ring.

The base had the same treatment but the base colour was Tamiya Sand. This has had the Scratch Effects and Sponge chipping.

To finish off, some graphite was rubbed onto the exposed metal parts and some dusty pigments applied.

That's it for now. Next time I'll show you how I did this!

Yup, that is incredible.  Not just the modeling work, which is spectacular, but the idea and the imagination to pull it off.

 

I wish I had thought of it and it was my work, basically.
