1:35 Zvezda kit.

Nice little kit which is nicely detailed and oh! so much easier to build than the MiniArt version!

I gave it what I think looks like a 'frosty' look. I also added some cargo and a cargo net.

Probably picked it up out of the barnyard.

I wish they made some of these subjects in 1/24-25. I think they would make awesome hot rods.

Well it's a complicated procedure John.

First you need an old fat paint brush. Next you need to visit your local model store and pick up a bottle of this stuff:





Now dip you brush in the jar and slop it on!!!!

Told you it was complicated.!!!

The Tamiya 'soil/mud dries to a matt finish so I applied ten coats of clear to get a wet look.

Zvezda provides a spare wheel/tyre which although not shown anywhere in the instructions, on the 1:1 is carried between the bed and the chassis. However, there simply is not room there on the kit........ so in the bed it went.

Very nice matey, been looking at the miniart Gaz trucks... Just to put in the cupboard with the rest

Mud looks great Al and your tutorial on how to produce it is really clear

The Miniart kit is more detailed Ash but for the sake of your sanity, I'd go with the Zvezda version you see here. It's not much less detailed and is SO much easier to build.

The Miniart kit has virtually no mounting points and is a real hair puller IMO

Zvezda ia cheaper too.
