did this one on another forum


ready to glue up.


and after gluing,










just the figs to go






my soft skin all done.

A steady factor in the Russian effort during WWII was the 1.5ton cargo truck, which was used for transporting personnel and a range of other duties. It was based upon a U.S. design and received an upgrade with revamped engine in 1938. The 1941 model was a vastly stripped down variant on account of a scarcity of time and metal resources following the German invasion of June 1941, and the ability to produce it quickly and cheaply was key in its integration into Russian military activities.


This is a great kit.

I used my Nkon SB 700 as a remote flash with the built in on the 7100 as well for these shots.

Just a simple little dio board with a theme of "A Back Road to the Front".

Niiiiiiiiice Phil.
I like the weathering, just subtle enough to make a big difference.

Outstanding work Phil!! The dio is one of those simple yet effective scenes that tells so much with so little - very nice mate.

Thanks Steve and Geoff, it's a nice little kit, I broke the thin headlight bar though!
