From SanderS: Landrover! (15 Points)

Hoi,

Just a short and low points post today, can't let the Friday Minions down eh? I have been busy painting the Theme Round entry lately so only managed to paint up Crooked Dice's very nice little Landrover Defender model. At first I was actually considering to paint it in the more traditional racing green with white roof but in the end went with this more sandy colour.






While I am not entirely happy with the windows, I do like the little car and it should net me a further 15 points. If ever I manage to get round and getting my driver's license I would like to drive one of these.

Cheers Sander 


A small entry but a great little offering, the sandy colour gives the look of an ex-military vehicle. The weathering is excellent and I like the depth you've achieved on the windows. 
I gather these are quite brutish to drive, and come with absolutely no mod cons! A colleague of mine drives one and can seat 10.
