And as you can see it's got a motor.

Made a start on this one got all the motor and battery connections fitted, but I can't try it out, I've got no AA batteries. I will need to go to the shop.

All you gotta do now is figure out some sort of real gun to fit. You got enough power there to have a serious go at world domination!

Got some more done to this. All the road wheels are put together and primed. Also got most of the upper hull done.

I'm sure the box art is from the Tamiya kit, but the kit certainly isn't. But it says that it's scaled down from the 1/35 Colin

Well it's all primed up, I've also painted the hull and road wheels.

I'm doing the salt method on one of the oil drums as if it's an old one beaten up a little.

Hi Ian
Looks fun. You have turned out a nice looking model from an old, simple and very cheap kit. I have heard of 'the salt method' but not tried it. Interested to see how it turns out.

noce looking job so far. Looking forward for the 'salted' barrel. I have tried it on a volkswagen kit and I quite like the chipping effect you get with this method.
