Getting to the painting stage-I added some 'claws' and a mine detection rig to the legs. The smoke/chaff launcher in the background will get attached in the final stages.

Thylacine camo should look great! 8)

Well, not too bad-the proportions are a little different.

I also added a 'Control officer' figure, modified from an old Tamiya Pkzw II figure.
Needs some refinement, but it'll get there.

Last steps are decals and weathering.

That looks great! The control figure looks straight out of a Mobeius comic book bande dessinée.

Excessive creativity of combining unrelated parts into unrelated final build.  :smiley:

Absolutely! This just gets better and better  :smiley:

...Getting flashes of short legged Dachshund version.

Umm, you meant to say "steathily low-profile Dachshund", right?  Words like 'short', 'kurz', 'wee', etc. are never to be voiced around Dackels! They are very sensitive about any stature-related terms ...  ;)

(For our American friends a reminder: National Dachshund Day is 21 June ... chosen because it is the loooongest day of the year  :D )

Thanks for the kind words, colleagues! Being compared to anything from the pen of Jean Giraud is high praise indeed.
Funny thing-when I first started this build, I was going to repurpose the original legs from the donor figures as the legs, getting as far
as installing ball joints. When I compared the length of the 'body' to the legs, it did look more like a dachshund... ;D

I've turned the heater on in the workshop, and should be adding the decals here in a bit.

Nice !

Why do those SF3D - (Machinenkreiger for the new guys) - things always looks best in that shade of brown (Humbrol 84)? :D

Well, it used to be either Australian Desert tan, or some variety of Panzer-ish Grey, but I have seen a bit more variety in the color pallette in recent years. These are from the recent Old Dominion Open show in Richmond Virginia.
