M1025 Humvee

Tamiya M1025 Humvee 1/35
Dragon Modern US Marines

I replaced the kit radio with the Verlinden radio set and attached wires and phone, some PE from Eduard was also added. The bike is from a Dragon set and the bike rack design was taken form pictures in a Velinden and Concord book. The Humvee was painted in Tamiya’s Nato colours. The figures were painted with Tamiya and Vallejo acrylic paints.

The Base
The base was a Balsa box brought from Bunnings that was covered with a mix of Tamiya brown paint, wet plaster and wood glue. Laid over the top of this was Heki grass. The Humvee was embedded into base while still wet, to give a more natural look
