Here's another one of my Armor Vehicles. I built this Italeri Kit back on 2006:

The M163 Vulcan Air Defense System (VADS) is a self-propelled anti-aircraft gun (SPAAG) that was used by the United States Army. The M168 gun is a variant of the General Dynamics 20 mm M61 Vulcan rotary cannon—the standard cannon in most US combat aircraft since the 1960s.

The camo looks spot on. It looks like you sprayed the green, and brush pinted the brown and black. What colors did you use?

I like it.

Yup, I sprayed the NATO Green and brushed the Nato Brown and Nato Black. All paints where from Tamiya. I had fun painting the camo. It's one of my favorite part of build military models. :D

I like it Felix. This vehicle and that camo was way before my time. Oh what fun I'd have had with that cannon. :rolleyes:

It looks good, I like AA vehicles. From what I've read few have been very good at their intended role of shooting down aircraft, but they do look neat. I got a Sgt York, Gepard and ZSU-23 a few years ago but never got around to building them.
