Thank you Mike, glad you appreciate the modifications.

Some lower quality Hummvs, don’t know who, that I picked up somewhere. They are the Dongfeng (Chinese Hummer). Just finished painting the Dongfeng.

Added some m.g. Up top on a few of the square back.

The shellback hummer, Dongfeng. Looks like a hatch. Not sure of the caliber….

Better quality tanks, MUCH better, GHQ made…. Type 99

CinC had them. Legions4Hire may still do them. You can get stl files, as well, at yeggi.com in the 1 - 100 modern combat vehicles group file. I'd go with the latter if you can.

Legions4Hire has both the Canadian an Nederlander versions in stock. Get'em now, because when they are gone, it takes time before he makes more. Not like Doritos OR GHQ! I would prefer a GHQ model, but have other priorities.

Since Model Masters paints has changed the colors and mix I am in search of a substitute for S.A.C. Green.
Used Krylon Fusion All-in-One Matte Pale Green. For Medium Green will try Matte Spanish Moss.

The Pale Green is a stronger shade, may need a wash. It does not appear as significantly different as it does on the table.
