Piranha by enc86 Piranha by enc86
Here is my 1/35 Lav-25 "Piranha". kit is painted and detailed by means of "what looks cool" style. kinda was going for post-apocalyptic vibe.

Kit is from trumpeter, details/stowage are from bits box. "Gasmask Steve" is a custom figurine, cigarette packs/carton/beer cans/ bottles ect sculpted outta of epoxy.

That's pretty sweet! Looks like more detail than the last two. Can you get a DUI driving a tank?

Very much so! It tend sot make a model more "yours" if you know what I mean. It's that personal touch.

there alright. for the price i cant complain too much. this one was about 18us, and other than a less than stellar turret and weird tires, was decent.
