Wolverine (Fire Support Vehicle - Missile)

The Wolverine was always one of my favorites when I was young. This is just a "refurbishing" of the original toy with some added detailing. Specifically, these things were done:

- The drive wheels were painted the same color as the rest of the vehicle.
- The seat was painted black.
- The engine compartment was painted steel, aluminum and black.
- The missiles were painted in the colors standard to US/NATO ground-based ordnance.
- The tools (which we called "pioneer gear" in the USMC) were painted the correct color.
- The waterproof bags strapped to the vehicle's engine cover were painted the correct color (these bags are used to hold the camouflage netting that hides the vehicle from overhead observation when it is idle).

After the vehicle was painted, I applied a new set of decals by Ruben Jiminez. All in all, I'm pretty happy with how this turned out.

I've already started working on the Lynx fire support vehicle and hope to have it posted tomorrow!
