SLB Heavy Industries – Hover APC
Kit used was the Revell SPz Puma and a few odds and ends from the parts box. The short range missile pack on the turret came from a Japanese Robotech kit. First time to use plastic tube for the skirt. The color scheme is what I get when I asked the wife, she said “ red and gray”. How is red a camo color ?  But I think being pushed out of my box turned out good.

Red does add a bunch vrs a flavor of army brown.  Could easily pick a wrong red, you picked the right one cuz Hover APC looks great wearing it.  Good eye for color.  :smiley:
Whether plausible or not, the design and its fine finishing makes it seem so. :smiley:

Excellent finish, Steve! Great job! 8)

Who says future wars will be fought willy-nilly all over the world? Maybe in this future nations buy time on a UN-set battle zone, using set equipment which is painted various prime colours to distinguish between alliances, is refereed by UN troops & is televised live.

Battle zones would be in less populous areas such as western-central Australia, Siberia, parts of Africa & South America, etc.

Love it as it all looks like it works. The colour works and the shading/blending first class.

As to colour, for my penneth worth, given the advanced sensors we could perhaps be dealing with by changing the modulation on the output of the Main Sensor dish, colour would not matter a tosh.

Beautiful in conception and execution!!  With that color, I almost expect to see this APC operating on Mars.
