This is my worst build yet. The only reason I have not dismantled it yet, is I will probably end up putting it into a bigger diorama. So here it is:

Your weathering and detail is excellent, I think it looks great.

Like others, I really cannot see whats wrong with it, it looks superb. just the right amount of 'use' without going overboard. I'd be proud to say I built that :)

Are you joking? That's one of the coolest truck models I've seen in a long time.

Thanks guys for the support. You knoiw what they say. We are our worst critic. Perfection has always been a goal. I have dismantled many models, believe me; not easy when we all want the perfect model.

Charles, this definitly one of  the best weatherings I have ever seen.

 

Most European modelers overdo weathering completely, but your subtle technique makes your model look exactly as a European workhorse looks in reality. The matching colour of the base makes it even more convincing.

 

Really excellent!
