The completed model above. The tarp resting on the toolbox was created using Magic Sculpt. Various weld beads were scratch built using styrene, Tamiya cement, and an X-Acto blade.

The painting and weathering process documented below began with a coat of Tamiya Nato Green, then lightened with a second coat that included Tamiya Yellow Green.
