No, that’s being left off. I do not think the US have a land mine problem :lol:

Plodding along with this one. The main vehicle is finished now, so on to a bit of weathering. It's going to be very subtle, so it may not show up in the photos.

I've faded the yellow a bit using the oil dot technique. I used Ammo Oilbrushers, Ochre and dusty earth. Just apply a few random dots, and brush out with a flat brush moistened with turps.

I need to add a wash as well, to bring out the weld detail and the detail in the wheels. I'm going to go back to a traditional oil and turps, using a medium brown. When I'm happy, it will be left for a couple of weeks for the oils to dry out well, then a gloss clear to apply the decals to, and finally and matt clear to finish off.

The decals will be print it yourself. I've downloaded a US stencil style font (loads free on the net) and printed off something suitable.

I was having a bit of writer's block over this. Wasn't quite sure where to go after the yellow was applied. However, I think I'm back in the groove again.

OK, let's start some weathering.

I used some Ammo Oilbrushers, a raw umber oil wash and a black oil wash. This is all that I used (plus a brush and some cotton buds).

That's probably about it. I was to keep it very light as it's essentially a road vehicle. Now it will get left for a couple of weeks to dry off properly, then the decals will go on.
