Just a few pics of my finished Technical.
I cut the Schleich SUV in half with a razor saw and extended it by epoxying a piece of MDF to the chassis. I then sprayed the chassis with black plastic dye and painted the body with semigloss spray enamel.
Using an old brush, I dabbed on 2 shades of green acrylic paint for the improvised camo pattern, followed by a drybrushing with silver to simulate paint chips and wear, then brown and tan paint for dirt and rust effects.
The grill guard is from a cheap plastic Land Rover toy, and the 50-cal MG is a modified Bravo Team (Unimax) item. I made the swiveling pintle mount from aluminium tubing and a small piece of aluminium sheet bent into a U shape. I used a small screw to secure the U-shaped piece to the tubing.
I made the "Somalis" from a variety of figure parts (GI Joe, Bravo Team and PTE).
