Roughneck Joe© Mobile Infantry "Desert Trooper"
(... and Diorama)

Continuing the legacy Roughneck Joe, a project originally started back in 1997 shortly after the movie Starship
Troopers came out.  Here is my patriotic homage to our Armed Services stationed overseas.  This "Desert Trooper" is sporting the new desert camo BDUs that were issued to our forces in the late 90's.

Our Trooper takes up a flanking position...

Note the desert camo on everything from the helmet to the Morita.

Desert Trooper Diorama

The base was designed to fit within this Nike display...

A three-piece skid plate is mounted to the front, to guard the hover jet bells.  The zimerit now covers what it needs to... textured paint will do the rest.  Final bits have been placed in logical locations, lending to future "cool sounding" explanations.
A view of the engine/reactor compartment.  Four bands of Cool Neon pulse downward (al-la ST:NG), with the fifth "beat" on the red coil. ...just a little soem'n-some'n for those who look inside.
Several views of the main guns in place.  Final shots of the turret, with close-ups of the copula ring and turret core.
