The armored truck

Posted by Santi Pérez on 24 Jul 2021, 19:01

Finally, here is the finished armored truck, with the decals already on. :thumbup:

In this first picture you can also see Sara Croft figure. It's her first job as a vehicle companion model. :mrgreen:

I include again the pictures of the original truck to remember how many decals it has:

And this is its scale copy, from different angles as always:

Oh it is so great to see Sara Croft back! I really love her! :love:

Pity of that, BTW nice painted, yellow truck in her back! It doesn't do her honour! :mrgreen: :joker: ;-) :thumbup:

Keep those trucks coming Santi! You're doing good! :thumbup:

Thank you very much for your kind words, mates. ;-)

Thanks, Joan. Not as amazing as your huge and wonderful armies from all historical ages, but I try to do it the best I can within my means. At least, I have one thing in common with you: a very personal painting style that makes our figures unmistakable, hahaha.

Thank you, MABO. I have tried to improve their making and application from my first attempt with them, and I'm happy with the result. :winky:

Mmm, Peter, I should remove Sara Croft from my future vehicle posts, because she steals all the limelight for her. :tongue:

Do you really think I'm doing good with my cars? Then I'm sure you'll be glad when you find out which is the next one I have started working on. Try to guess. :mrgreen:

My best regards. :-D

Wow, I'm amazed of how many fortune-tellers are here in the forum. And good fortune-tellers, because you're right. :lol:

Yes, I have begun working on this committed project at Peter's request. I'm still in the research phase, looking for information on the original Popemobile to make the most accurate representation possible of it. :winky:

As soon as I have the first pictures I will post them in a new thread in the "Work in Progress" section. ;-)

Thanks so much, Egbert. ;-)

And to definitively end this project, some pictures to check the improvement of the converted truck compared to the original vehicle, both together.

Well, by being only active mods (Peter much more than me) it is not very hard to be someone's favorite :xd:
My opinion could be valuable when I start to paint and show something :xd: :xd:

Of course it was a joke, Kekso. All opinions and criticisms are worth the same to me, as they come from modelling fanatics, many of them more skilled and experienced than me. :mrgreen:
