Bud, kudos for the 2nd place, just shows not everyone likes all sorts of extra weathering and the banged up look.

I hope you accept it is flattery, but my 1sy Lanc will look very much like yours, with the 2nd done in the grey scheme.

Hope it comes out as nice as yours.

Thanks, fellas!  Armored cars are a nice break from biplanes as they are relatively simple and easy to build and paint.  I've just started the Meng RR.  For this one, I'll be printing my own decals so I can build H.M.A.C. Cleopatra, T.E. Lawrence's car.
Cheers,
Bud

Bud, FWIW, see the info regarding the kit's turret in the Meng RR AC thread in this sub forum.

IMHO, your weathering might stand a bit more dirt/mud, but is otherwise perfect!  These vehicles weren't in service and close combat long enough to warrant the dings, chips, rust, typical of WWII AFV's. And my, wasn't Miss Vickers a very busy lass during WWI!!
