1/35 M1025 Humvee
I had no plan to build a Humvee of any sort until Tamiya announced their M1025. Just one of those cases where I had the urge to build something just because it was a Tamiya kit and I knew it was going to make for a fun and straight forward build all on its own.
When released in 2003 the Tamiya Humvee easily outclassed the competitor's kits regarding both overall shape and the small details. Despite a somewhat bare interior it is still a great kit in all respects. This one was built straight from the box, the only addition being the IFOR logo provided as a paint mask by Eduard.

Mud and spatter as good as life-pretty amazing work.
I agree with Bryan...excellent weathering detail work, Anders (but I liked it better in the "before" photo) - is whatever you used 'removable' ?
Thanks for the comments!
Craig, I used Mig pigments and some Liquitex Ceramic Stucco to build up volume. I am afraid it won't come off completely if I would try removing it. But the mud and dust certainly will stay on. 🙂
Beautiful work on that Humvee. I am with you though sometimes you just want to build something that will be nice and easy and look good when you are done. I think you did an awesome job with the mud splatters. I have yet to master that grubby dirty well used vehicle look. More practice is what I need, gives me a good excuse to pull out another armor kit.
Thanks Walt, very much appreciated. 🙂
