Dave Oliver enjoys building the 1/35th scale Meng Model GAZ Tiger model. A thoroughly modern kit of the Russian equivalent of the Humvee. It should also be said that this model won gold at the IPMS Nationals held at Telford on the 9th and 10th of November.

Excellent looking model, Dave.. I love the paint job, and the dusty weathering makes it look so real!

Could you share what three colors you used for the camouflage? I always have a a hard time figuring out what colors give the required look

Excellent looking vehicle and great paintjob! I am also interested in the colors you used! You mentioned Vallejo as far as i can understand? Vallejo sand and Vallejo Russian Green, meaning Vallejo Model Color 916(sand) and 894(russian green)?
