Modified Schleich "Technical"

Posted on May 11, 2011 at 10:55 PM

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).
