thanks a lot guys, my friend was really happy with it as a gift so "mission successful" so to speak. I just got myself 4 of the finemolds star wars kits so hopefully i can use what i learned with this one to really do those kits justice.

thanks for the positive comments guys, really appreciated.

 

Steve - The wood grain in the bed was molded as part of the kit so i painted it desert yellow then drybrushed it over with a darker brown. It took a bit of patience but i was really happy with the result. I wish it was my skill painting the woodgrain but sadly i'm not at that level with my painting techniques ! maybe one day.

 

as far as the wheels go they suited the build better than the box stock ones provided but ideally i would have used some that were in between in terms of style and size.

 

thanks again for looking and the comments.
