Here is the UK MUTT
Its the Modular Universal Tactical Transport
Its the tactical arm of the British APC forces. Each APC is accompanied by an air drone and a MUTT. The MUTT provides a unique offensive arm and the drone provides live recon information. The APC provides guidance and support for the MUTT and the drone and can provide tactical artillery support.
The Mutt is about the size of a small car and can be used autonomously to the APC
Ill have some concept work of the APC up and ready soon :)

Its been while coming....however this will be my first vehicle release....Horraahhh I say. It still needs to be printed , cleaned, molded and made ready, however this will be one of my first releases so I thought Id give a sneak peak!
Its the BTR 290, professionally sculpted by CoolHands 3d models. A mighty fine job he did to! (I think :))
What on earth are those VTOL jets and fans I hear you say....well lets just say the BTR can also provide its own long distance lift capability! The lift capability is removed until a long distance drop is required and travels like conventional vehicles. The VTOL harrier type exhaust/jets power the lift fans with assistance from 6 thrusters.
The BTR can carry 10 troops and packs heavy cannon and Gatling gun HMG for support.
Their has been several unconfirmed reports of variations....
I thought this might be helpfull for some people. However to be honest most people who visit this site can paint far better then me anyhow! :)
Stage 1 Clean
Stage 1 Prime - I use Halfords Car Primer - Grey
Stage 2 Clean again. I find the primer shows up more I need to clean. Not that I often do!
Stage 3 - Airbrush of paint base coat Vallejo Russian Uniform (odd one LMG is German grey Air)
Stage 4 - Wash I use devlan mud or army painter strong tone and dark tone for LMG guy
Stage 5 - Block Colours - Vallejo Khaki for webbing and boots, GW battlegrey for weapon and LMG guy. Skin I use Tallarn Flesh
Stage 6 - Wash webbing again - Same wash colors. Face with Ogren Flesh wash
Stage 7 - Highlight - I use Coat d'arms Khaki for khaki areas and any mid grey for weapons
Stage 8 - craft pva base and dip in model railway ballast gravel
stage 9 - craft pva and sprinkle static grass
stage 10 - Varnish
Sounds slow, however each stage is really quick and drying time is minimal
Hope that's of some use all
