Awesome job. :10:

Matchbox has some great models which, with just a slightly better paint scheme, would be a hell of a lot better.

I too bought several of the Lesney Edition versions and was forced to paint the shiny chrome undercarriage green. :bash2:

Many Thanks for the approval,
I just can't figure why they would have used the Chrome piece on that Special Edition version.
Esp, when the two Tactical version have the black. :?

What wheels did you copy when you cast them?

No thought to using tiny MG's?

Somewhere in Sydney The General has had an accident in his underpants... :lol:


The wheels are a "mix and Match" of Roco wheels.
For the last twoo pic's I used the European Tire set with the Unimog rims,
then molded and cast them in resin.
The first set of pic's I used wheels pulled from the Maisto FMTV,
molded and cast in resin.

As for as tiny MG's,
They are pretty hard to mold and cast....
due to their small size, but I am able to do .50 cal's.
As seen on the other vehicles I have done.
