Hello,

This is my rendition of the Trumpter's M16 MGMC in 1/16 scale.
It is not strictly completed since I still have three figures to put inside and to add the antenna for the radio.
Other than that I assume it's ok, at least for me...

Thanks for watching,
Cheers,
Manu

... have shown restraint on the level of weathering (not to say that heavy weathering is not a valid option). Looking forward to seeing it with it's crew and other items.

Thank you all for your comments.

Please note that I'll be adding very soon about one hundred of spent cases with the same number of separate links (see details here :http://manu-military.e-monsite.com/page ... 6-gmc.html).

Dang, slap a chunk of bacon on it and call it good, what an incredible build! But, what I'm in for is the figure work to go with this beauty. What figures are you going to use Emmanuel? This will be one sweet set up in a dio once all is said and done. I never knew there were these rigs in 1/16, dang me................. I recon I better get out more, lol. Great work Buddy!


Cheers, Ski.

P.S. I'm partial to Large Scale Figures and rigs.

M16 MGMC figures

May 31st, 2017, 5:17 am #8

Hi,

Thanks for your interest for my model.

The figures I'll be using are the two ones that were supplied in the box.
There are both to go in the driving compartment.
Unfortunately they are coming both with the "tanker's" jacket rather than the M41 jacket which isn't quite exact.
But I assume I have to make do with it since they are the only sitting figures and not in an infantry combat configuration I know.

So I got them moulded to get a third one, modified the positions (legs & arms) to get:
- one in the turret toying the .50 caliber mg,
- one waiting for it to happen sitting behind,
- the chief braying on the radio siting on the front passenger seat.





See you
Manu
