Auction listing pic - Not my work!
It took a few weeks to get here, but the price was right - I was surprised when I opened the package:
It looks like a kid's cereal box toy - it even comes with spring-launched missiles! Regardless, it's not a bad likeness, and the scale looks good. Guess I'll grab the instructions and put it together:
Uhhh, does anyone read Russian?
Anyways, I puzzled through it. I didn't use any dip on this model, opting instead for weathering powders. While I wasn't going for "competition quality" while I was doing it, I noticed that Secret Weapon Miniatures was having a contest specifically geared towards the use of weathering powders - I went ahead and entered it, even though this was only the 2nd or 3rd time I'd tried working with them. I didn't win, but they featured the model on their Facebook page I heard some nice comments!
