Crew are a mix of Kingfisher and possibly Britannia (Grubby Tanks).
The Bar armour is cut from parts of a Voyager photo etch set for the Stryker, I'd done this prior to a pal commissioning a PE ste of Bar armour sheets. Damaged and bent in various places to taste.
1st Royal Anglian Scimitars, overwatch on the Green Zone, Helmand 2007
(Notice the early low ECM suite).
The model is based loosely on images (specifically these couple of shots) of the Queens Dragoon Guards during their deployment.
Painting, 1st coat.
Base coat on, with some highlights, Hannants Xtracrylic British Army Stone, it appears a little satin when it goes on, this fades and matt’s down with weathering and varnish. Still not sure if I like this paint or not, it seems very ‘plastic’; however as I want some uniformity with this project I need to use it until I finish all the vehicles.
Starting to add some pin/localised washes and add some colour where required.
Eagle-eyed folks will spot the change of ECM box from the original box which was too large. This one isn't right either but it will have to do.
Saw a photo somewhere of a Scimitar with a replacement hatch padding, so I've done the same to add some colour. All my models have some colour in them somewhere.....
A little bit of chipping here and there, its more subtle on the model than an enlarged photo.
Completed (ish) just needs a flag and a water bottle on the antenna.
Vikings next......at some point!
