Spectrum Patrol Vehicle (SPV)


Just a stunning looking vehicle and had to be part of my Spectrum Forces as their main combat vehicle. An ultra rare Imai kit.

I decided upon two of these monsters luckily managed to get my hands on them for resonable prices…..but once i started the kits i realised only half the wheels had rubber tyres..the inner wheel had a plastic one that wasn’t even the same diameter as the rubber wheel!!!

There was no way to get round the problem i needed some more tyres…it isn’t easy finding anything in this diameter, in the end i gave up and purchased two more SPV’s just so i could use the rubber tyres! It was starting to get expensive.

I was then left with 2 kits with all plastic wheels……to good to waste so I decided to make them into Knocked out versions of the other SPV’s.

I’d been driven to this by seeing a very nicely painted Sherman tank with loads of rust by one of my friends from Canada, Grant. I decide i was going to try out the rock salt method for my rust. This will clearly take some practise to get completely right but i’m happy enough with the results and once i have added damaged decals and smoke and flames (on cotton wool balls) I think they will look pretty much as if they were hit by a particle beam weapon.

All Hulls are far from finished, stil waiting on…….you’ve guessed it decals…..but hopefully they will be finished soon.
