I like it a lot!!!

The base is especially effective, simple but extremely realistic!

Thanks for the inspiration.

Cheers,

Christophe

Thanks Kevin,

this is the Academy kit (13201) which is pretty good. The best is that you can built a Warrior without the Chobham Armour as well, for a OPFOR vehicle (which will be my next Warrior project. We live almost next door to Salisbury Plain, where these are used.).
The kit comes with all the add on doodaahs, such as Ammo boxes, folding chairs etc to dress it up properly for a Iraq I vehicle. No slat armour though...

Cheers

Thanks Christophe,

I wanted to show the Warrior in some other setting than the usual muddy field, and the ripped up road surface of a snow lined road in Bosnia was perfect. Glad you like it.

Very nice--I like the weathering and the base, in particular.
