Hey I know I said I was going to do some of my stalled builds but this has been calling me since I bought it, probably as I've not built a truck before (you get a lot of plastic for your money) 

I know a lot of people don't like it but I'm doing it as an old and tired truck, in the past I've got a lot of flack for doing this type of stuff, well it's my model and I like doing old. (I've ordered some inkjet decal paper so hopefully I can make my own decals)

I may get another truck or bus for it to be towing.

Made a start on weathering it.

So happy you started this project... I LOVE those trucks... made some when I was a child.. and now still like to build army véhicules. That's why I choose russian army trucks for the 1/72 GB. Thank you so much for sharing your project. I can't wait to see your next posts. This is going to be very exciting.

Why on earth would anyone give you grief just for building an old, weathered truck?  We wear warplanes and tanks, don't we?  Like you said, it's your kit, so you build it just however you want it.

Thanks mates, weathering has to be redone as I've been informed the hood is fiberglass and the cab is aluminium so back to the drawing board, weathering wise.

Hi all well I've redone the bodywork so no rust but staining and sun bleaching (Still more to do but that will have to wait till I've made and added my decals)

Done some to the chassis (boy are they complicated) and started on the engine.

Hi Kenneth, very nice weathering.   

By the way I'm also working on the chassis of my two little trucks and adding some pigments. Never did this before, but it give's the model a very realistic look. I'm using the Vallejo pigments, and so far I'm satisfied with the results. Of course I will have to practice more with mixing and applying them, but it's a very creative way for weathering models. I like it.
