    Hi,
    This Model was built way back in 2002 and is the very old Italeri 1/35th Crusader mk II kit built straight from the box except for minor added details - wire fuel tank pipe, draped camo net, tarpaulin, tin foil and gloss varnished headlight lens and Tommy helmets. Base is an old bread board and the desert groundwork is formed from polyfilla coated in a watered down wood glue mix sprinkled with sand, fine dirt from the road and crushed cat litter (unused of course ! ) the desert grass is made from old shaving brush hairs bundled together then placed in the still wet plaster/polyfilla. Painted the ground with many different oil colour washes and dry brushed high lights. This was one of the quickest and easiest models I've made and just goes to show you don't have to buy the latest expensive kits or detail sets etc. to get good results also this kit is well known for having some details that are wrong for the mk II but I didn't care and just made it as it came yet it still won many awards at the model shows. Hope you like it sorry for the quality of the photos but they were also taken on an old camera in 2002.
    Cheers, Andy.

    Another stunning model - one of your best yet i think.
    I love the details - the rusted spare track sections, the helmets.

    That's fantastic Andy. The painted really has that sun weathered look.
