Twin Hammers new body and accessories

IMG_5446

I wanted to make my Twin Hammers more unique so I started by replacing the standard plastic body with a set of aluminium body panels.

I decided to paint the panels in a basic desert camo scheme of sand and earth.

Some decals were applied to the side panels to add a bit of detail.

I also replaced the vehicle race number plates on the back of the vehicle with recovery boards. These are also aluminium and were painted desert yellow.

To complete the new look I ordered a pack of rock crawler accessories from eBay and strapped some gear to the roof and recovery boards with bungee chords .

After loosing my main detail brush I decided to try out a pack of these.

I should have some Infantry painted and ready to add to a Diorama soon. I will let you know what I think of the brushes too.

New Humvee shell for Tamiya Blackfoot 3

WP_000074

This is a Proline Hummer H2 body shell for my black foot 3.

It is painted with Tamiya lame flake and a black under coat.

This is the first time I have had a go with flaked paint and I am pleased results.

Next for the blackfoot is some hopups I have to install.
