SLB Heavy Industries – Hovertank “Bruno”

Scratch built, turret from Trumpeter E-100

Looking good!  Very brutish looking and just the right amount of weathering and stowage.

That really looks great. I admire the hover designs that you come up with.

Definitely looks the business!!  I could see this mixing it with the hovertanks from Hammer's Slammers.

One bad hover tank.  Frontal armor is extra tuff cookie to crack.
Are wear-n-tear paint chips at corners etc painted onto basic color or actually chipped away exposing undercoat ?

The chips are painted on. I have Migg chipping stuff, but have yet to try it, maybe on the USV in the group build.

Thank you all for the comments.

Nice work all the way around. If you pose the model on something like a humbrol tin ( or something of similar height and breadth ) it'll look like its in hover from most photographic angles.
