Started painting the Dustbuster Friday night. Got pretty far and am on to weathering now. Kit builds up quick and is a lot of fun so far! Started a SBS on the link below with how I did the chips, etc...

Nice! Really like this one, has a cool Borderlands feel to it.

Thanks! It was inspired by Borderlands before BL2 came out. The concept artist was playing with designs he thought would be cool for a future BL game.

Thanks! It's experience really... I'm not doing anything here I haven't done before so it's going quick. Plus if I forget something, I just go back and read my old SBS's. The downside though is also just that... I'm not doing anything here I haven't done before. Practicing skills is of course great and a good way to keep them sharp, but I always worry about stagnation and falling prey to that mindset that "this is how it should be and that's how I'm always gonna do it". That's DEFINITELY to be avoided! But I have lots of ideas to come so no worries! 8)

Oh I wouldn't worry too much. With your skillset it's fine if you 'take it easy' for a few builds. Us model builders ALWAYS have plenty of new ideas of things to try too, I think we all know that :)

Don't worry Michael. I'm on a begginers path and belive me not knowing how all the stuff works it's not easy. I need to try all the new things on a side and than it's always something wrong when I trying the same thing on an actual model :D
Like Sharkdog said take it easy for a while. You are making beautifull things and you are making them right. I know you'll suprise us sooner or later.

Love the underside weathering, looks very realisitic.

Looking forward to the mounting on the base, I like dynamic poses

This looks incredible. As a fan of the borderlands franchise I'd love to take this thing for a spin and run over some bandits with it! That rusted over and dirty chassis looks so real, I love it. Definitely taking notes for my tank!
