Thanks, BT! :)

Unfortunately it'll be at least a week before I get back to this, as I've got 7 day-shifts starting tomorrow. :icon_crap:

But then I've got 3 weeks leave! ;D

That is coming together very nicely sir. I have to say that the Warrior looks very good in those colors. Looking forward to seeing the finished project!

One of my old Troop Leaders did a trip to the UK in the late 90s and got to play with Warrior, he came back with glowing reports say they actually comfortably exceeded their tabulated performance data and were so far in advance of out clapped out M-113s that there was no point upgrading them we should just replace them.  Of course this being Australia the government launched an upgrade programme that took well over a decade and delivered an inferior vehicle for more than a superior new build (even locally) replacement would have cost.

Thanks guys! :icon_alabanza:

Already have a Chally I (in a different scheme) but I'm going to be stripping her down & using her as my "Paint B!t<#".

The salvaged parts will be used as add-ons for the Chally II in the stash, when I get around to it.

Not sure who's going to have the Chally II, as I've already ear-marked my Merkava IV for the RAM ... Maybe RAAC, with a closer-to-actual camo scheme?

Wow that's great! I really like the netting and how that neat little red Coleman cooler highlights it all!

Great work!

My original Troop Leader from back in the day got the chance to play with Warriors back in the mid to late 90s in a semi official capacity.  He thought they were great and reported back that they would be much better value than upgrading the M-113 as the base vehicle was already superior to the proposed possible specs of the upgraded M-113.  Well history is history, except for here.  ;D

kerick: The camo net is some lace mesh I bought about 8 years ago. I've used it for camo netting & as fencing mesh. I think it's nylon or similar as it doesn't soften when wet but does take acrylic paint nicely.
