Hi

My new works is the last Italeri product, the Lince.

thr box art



I think I build a spanish version in Afga like the picture



Start by assembling the chassis, has nothing to say assembles very well ...









For fun, the ventral shield.



floor



the cabin



and the cargo



With the suspension in place, still good. Some blunders, I found the quality of plastic that I know with their helicopters, it is a brittle hair ...





Following assembly, with the end of painting the chassis, the cabin and cargo area.
Mounting of rollbars and painting of the dashboard and seats.









It always assembles as well. It's fun!

See you.

Can't wait to see the finished model.

There is a very nice book about the LMV Iveco



There are very few pics of spanish vehicles in Afghanistan.

There are also pics of italian and belgian vehicles.

Good evening everyone

Today I continued painting the interior of the unit to ask the seats.

No traps if not think to paint all sides of the coins, sometimes face down, is not as much as what is believed ...





I still have a seat and a half to finish by asking them the safety belts pictured cutting ... a nightmare to ask that we have a hand, and left more ... (In France when someone is clumsy, often said that he has two left hands)

I took the opportunity to paint the body in olive drab, with a Tamiya and one of Gunze ... I think the Gunze is closer to the photo I posted early. What do you think?











Appointment tomorrow to be the new ...

So, After glue the PE safety belts, I painted scuffing on the floor in the cargo area This works will not very visible...

The weathering will make.

I can't comment on the color as I am color blind.

Parts seem to fit well.

I have one kit in my stash, I've just ordered DEF Model wheels for it.

It's not cool for modelling, or for the chimical experience...

The resin's wheels... a wish, I have not been reasonable with the "Maquette Char Promo" soldes... my budget is out !
Horrible !

GaŽl, I used Vallejo 70.980 Black Green. This is the correct color for "Guardia Civil" but for Spanish army is Olive Drab.
I did communication radios in scratch. If you want, I can sent to you.
Congratulations

Hello everyone,

And then after a little break I took over the assembly of this kit.

Basically I was there.



I attacked the outside.







I changed my tune, I will do it under the decor of the Guardia Civil ... As in this photo.

Hello everyone,

@ Alex: Yes the resin wheels really bring a plus to the kit.

First airbrush shot with the specific green of the Guardia Civil ...









Then start crushing,







Then after letting the products dry, I pulled the different shades with white spirit.







and with the bull bar.



Go to the next.
