Got her sprayed green with a side serving of salt....

 

All the stowage and weaponry is done.

 

 

 

 

Set now for a jolly to Africa...

 

Now the Rover,I like this because it builds up like a real Rover - except for the bulkhead rust..

 

 

Together..

hey Mini Man. great start. Are you using the salt for weathering later or to keep the cows entertained while parked in the fields? 

I like to work just as much as I don't.

Just seeing the "Bren/LMG" (Where's the magazine ??) on theLand Rover brought back some old memories when I was a Royal Marine cadet in '83/4/5 .C/SGT :- " Spen , you're big , carry this !"  Great , thanks a lot ! 11 years old .... ! ( The others were still carrying Lee Enfields 303's !! (@ 9lbs each) . Not a lot of funding for us kiddlies then LOL at least it wasn't muskets ! I was 12 years old , at "one of the Army bases" Bisley or Pirbright??  I fired just 20 rounds of a GPMG . 5...5...5...5 Prone . Not like Rambo ..... (BOO!) I had to lay there for a while as I was ..... "Happy !!"
