Charles you're too modest mate, that's another masterpiece ! As DeeCee said earlier, us mere mortals would just drop the truck on a mirror base to show of the undercarriage, but that's not enough for you is it ?? I love the way that the trailer is pushing over the dead tree, and the side mirror is laying broken off the cab. Great touches.
Looking forward to your next mind-blowing effort.

Cheers, Damian

HaHa I was waiting for someone to respond to that. Smile That is right. Ever since I've been building 1/35 military models before I started building trucks, just last year, I have always used the rattle cans. I know, more expensive in the long run but I do not have to worry about cleaning. Smile But I will get one becaus it is harder to do camo and finer painting without an airbrush. I just need a bigger place.

My friend ... I had you on a pedestal as a great builder ...looks like I have to add some height to that pedestal because to get those paint effects from rattle cans ...truly awesome.

Im traveling around WA at the moment (Took 2 years off) and I carry all my stuff (camping and modeling) in a 6x4 trailer. If I can carry a small compressor and air brush ...you should be able squeeze one in. I was sh*t scared of airbrushes till I got one ....now im thinking of things to try with it !!!

Keep up the great work mate....cant wait to see what you do when you master an airbrush.

Wow Dean. Very inspiring, I must say. camping and modeling all-in-one. Now I'm the one who should be impressed. Thanks for for that. It really lifted me up. I am still considering an airbrush just have to wait a little longer till my next child is born. BTW, do you have a pic of your setup? I would be glad to see it. BTW, how noisy is the compressor?

Go to youtube and type in deanotune ...I have lots of vids there about my setup and where I have been. And before you ask ...im a mechanic by trade and as a younger bloke they used to say ...dont get it dynotuned ...get it deanotuned. I specialized in performance motors but im lost on this new compurtised shit !

As for the compressor ...if I sneezed the noise would drown it out ! It is super quiet. I got it off thiefbay for about $60 new. Best money I have ever spent.

Its the little things mate ...the fuel spill and the plastic over the broken window (and a hundred other things) that keep me coming back to your builds. Almost a shame to tip over but when a steerer goes ...your just a passenger! Great work.

This is unbelievable mate. I cant believe I missed this one. I thought I was looking at a real crash. I especially like your attention to detail on the damage and the weathering.

Great job bud.
