Waffle... I'll be building Big J to her last configuration. No 'Dazzle' for me...

I rather imagine you have many duties this weekend, mate...

They are important. So are you in their exercise.

Thanks, Waffle. But upon looking at it this morning when going to add another part, I noticed that I had glued the motor and casing in backward. Nice . So, I broke the pieces off and put them right, and am largely unscathed since these bits will not be seen under the trunk, I hope! It's ugly, but it's fixed...

Yeah you need to be careful when you do that.

"Splotch" Sniper complete. He looks a bit like a German AFV with a splotched stripe and an ambush pattern on the sand color, looks pretty cool. Now I have just my Sergeant to do and I'm out of camouflage ideas. I wanted him to have one I can do and extra cool.

Not sure you could get it in any sort of small amount... but have you thought of - the ever color changing, depending upon angle viewed from - Chameleon paint... taped off cammo style & sprayed in separate sittings?

Might be an interesting effect...
