M163 VADS and M48 Chaparral

I finished painting some anti-air for the U.S. over the weekend.  Two M163 VADS and one M48 Chaparral are painted and ready to use. The Chaparral and the VADS were designed to complement one another, with the Chaparral taking out long range targets and the VADS dealing with short range ones. This was my first time painting U.S. 1980’s camouflage and I like how it turned out. I realized afterwords that the gun barrels were supposed to be black on the VADS, but I like them the way they are. Soon these will be shooting down those pesky SU-27’s and Mi-24’s!

Until next time,

1/350th LCAC

I got a MRC LCAC and it sat on a workbench half finished for quite awhile. This model was a frustrating build because the turbines and rudders were very finicky, but turned out great and full of detail. The painting was fun to do, it comes with some great decals, and you get sprues for two LCAC’s in the box! I plan to also paint up some LVTP’s so I can have a US Marine’s force. The LCAC can hold 4 Tanks or 8 APC’s. I think it will be fun to do some beach assault games with this, the Marines try to seize a key dock from the Soviets. It is a great model that I enjoyed throughly, I would highly recommend it to anyone.

Until next time,
