This project was inspired by photo's of post war units sitting in storage yards after being put to work on farms and other uses. From what I can tell, many of these have parts and panels mixed and matched from other similar vehicles, painted over and modified for civilian use. This is my vision. Painted with Model Master enamels, AK rust and Vallejo pigments. Hair spray and salt for patches and rust. Largely experimental to figure out the application process. Was a fun build, although I deleted many parts from the kit because lots of 'bolt on stuff' was ratted off these after military use.
Rubber tracks were too long, so I had to remove one link from each side to get them close to fitting. Otherwise, the general fit of the panels is ok. Unfortunate that all engine detail is hidden, it's pretty good.
That's a great build David. I really like the weathering. Just how I picture this vehicle in a Military Dump.
I started this kit in 2016 and did not finished yet. It is possible to keep the roof removable just as the ammunition container. Just don't glue them.
After a hiatus of a few year hoping to pick up the hobby very soon and finish some projects.
By the way. I took a peek on your other models and like the way you build these
Nice build. Love the grizzled look.
Nice weathering Job
Thanks for the feedback everyone.......this build has had some minor additions since these pics were taken. I just thought it could do with some cracked and broken glass in the front and rear lights.
