Here's my contribution to the GB, it's the little brother to Mobears Supacat HMT600 Coyote, the Supacat HMT400 Jackal.

I must admit, this is way out of my comfort zone, so many potentially breakable bits, and I'm having to think ahead about how to build it.:confused: As Jezza say's "Where's my hammer ?" :hammer::laughing:

But I am looking forward to building it. Hope it turns out OK.

Onwards and upwards.

Thanks for looking.

Tony.

Haven't posted on this thread for a while, so an update is due.

This is where I am up to -View attachment 57210 First coat on the wheels and tyres.

View attachment 57211View attachment 57212View attachment 57213View attachment 57214 and the basic parts are together primed and have received their first coat.

This is only the second "car" I've ever built, the first one was when I was nine or ten, I now remember why I stopped doing them. If you car builders go through as much chew as I have with this one then I take my hat off to you.

Anyway thanks for looking.

Any comments or criticism's are welcome.

Tony

Well better late than never I suppose.

This one has seemed to take forever, but in my defence I was trying quite a few new things, building a wheeled vehicle, building and painting figures, and leaqrning to use my new air brush.

Anyway, enough talk, here's the piccies.

I'm calling it "Roadside bomb?" On a routine patrol a Jackal and crew see what may be a IED at the road side. They stop and while the rest of the section move to take up covering postions, the section leader crouches down to take a look to confirm.

I'm quite pleased with the result, and I've learned a lot doing it.

Thanks for looking.

All comments welcome.

Tony.
