Mighty's Trumpeter Stryker

Just finished this up, sorry about not posting any in progress pics here as this is for a build review. This is a definately great little kit, and I'm now in love with the Stryker......













Thanks for looking!

She is definately one coooool looking ride. Thanks for the post. I do think I am going to wait for the rest of the players to release theirs before I buy though. If it would have had anything close to their old price tags of 25.00 I would have bought it in a heart beat but....... Thanks for wetting the appetite.

Very cool!
Nice looking and dirty!
Which green did you use as a base, and which markings did you depict?

Looks nice Roderick,

Did you apply a gloss coat? The paint seems a little too glossy, but the model looks good. I took a ride in the prototype of the Stryker when it was undergoing trials and I must say it’s a nice ride. Not a very effective fighting machine, (at least in my opinion) but a cool ride nonetheless.

Dave

Cheers fellas, @ Saul, yes that was mine
@ Giacomo, the colour is GSI Mr Color (lacquer) H319 Light Green, it's an almost perfect match for the "clean" colour on Strykers (IMHO)
@David, no gloss coat, no top coat of anykind in fact, Mr Color produce such a smooth hard finish that they can look almost glossy in photos, in real life it's dead flat....

Thanks for looking
