  1. Next typical russian worker from 50ties. Kit is combination of white metal and plasticc. Tires are normal rubber. Used colors are surfacer 1000 , green and white from Gsi (Mr.color lacquer) and wood color is from revell acrylics.
  2. Hi guys. Here´s something of another scale. This kit is small just 1/43. It is interesant, that it is combination of white metal and plastic, but it is no die cast. You must make everything like by typical build. to sand, to glue and to paint it. This model represents typical russian heavy tractor Kirovets. Avd models is a producer from Estonia European unity - no problem with shipping worldwide and they accept paypal paypament also). here is link https://www.modelsshop.eu/shop?manufacturer=264. AVD makes truck and heavy machines of former east block, and it is very interesant. Quality is very high, as you can see.
  3. Thanx guys. Unfortunately Jabekke is far away from me, and I've got lot of work at hotel where I work.
  4. This time I will show you something special. This kit of Kenworth Bullnose is very rare. Just about 25-27 kits (cabinekits) were produced. So this model is just a resin combinated with chassis from KFS (made by cnc). What can I say about real truck? …so ugly as is beautyfull.The first new postwar truck with cab over the engine layout was the range 500. This version used doors, roof elements and chassis from conventional models of 500 series. For the original shape of the front end the truck received nickname “Bull-Nose”. Interestingly, the cab of the truck didn’t tilt, and was rigidly fixed to the frame. Service of the engine was either from the cockpit or below. Cabin was available in both day and sleeper version. The range included model 521 (4×2), 523 (6×4) and 524 (6×2). My model is covered by Mr.Hobby surfacer 1000, then painted by white base (carpaint) and covered by 2k clearcoat. Chromed parts are airbrushed by Spaz Stix. Another specialty is unique page and page suspensions. All resin parts are produced by Pavel Behensky. Wheels are also resin. Kit consists also set of photoetched parts, also fully colored.
  5. Kit maker is my very good friend. Unfortunately this kit is sold out. This kit I've bought 3-4 years ago. It is very rare resin. He made at same quality KW S900, Pete 351 and Pete 280/350 Coe "Bubblenose". All of those kits are sold out...unfortunately. Now he prepared reedition of 351 and Autocar DC 75/100. If will be some news I will inform you guys.
  6. Pics from build. Front axle is from KFS. Resin is quite heavy so I recommend to use white metal axle. Rear suspensions will be really rare product (incl.in the box). Page & Page suspensions.
  7. Here's my latest project. I decided for something special. So it will be this oldie. Resin cabinekit is from Stratomodel. I must prepared just a chassis. That frames I used are coming from KFS. But it is possible to make it from profiles. All chassis is just a copy of some amt kit. I bought also reworked engine NTC 250 (same as White Freighliner kit). From resin, there are also wheels. I can say it is probably the most quality resin I've seen before. Top details.
  8. Now something smaller. This Škoda just 6-7 inches long. Recently spoke to me message from one my friend most likely seeking the color combo coat resin parts of this "trambus" - so we call this type of truck in Czech and Slovakia. For me it was a challenge even for the fact that I model in this scale, never did and also for the fact that it is a full resin kit. Model is without any modifications. Supplied glazing was almost scratched so I it tried a little Polish, unfortunately the scratches I could not remove. The colors used are Gunze C (Mr.color), oddly enough to me with them still goes. I took the dark wash but better would be about neutral. The Patina is such a one my style. Full work time was about 2 and half of day. Unfortunately one wiper is missing. Will be new one.
  9. Hj guys, here are few pics of finished complete of "Diamond Reo Texaco truck". Trailer is made by Lindberg. I changed complet wheels and added some flexible hoses).
  10. Guys from Ctm prepared sets for 359 (Revell), 352 (Amt) also as Hayes Clipper version. It will be huge portion of new parts so as interior fully colored. Also some nev lights. Mid of november...
  11. It is original carpaint. Ask for base Nissan Magma red (shade for Z33, if I can remember).
  12. After long time another finished model lies in front of me on the table. Is it just a box with decals Texaco. I choose them out of the box from the Amt Tanker kit. I homemade consoles of mirrors and roof air conditioning units, new exhausts, so as susie coils. I decided on the design of the cab type daycab, without the sleeper. The colors used are carpaint Ivat. The top clearcoat is 2K from Ivat. Polished surface, I lightly airbrushed by Tamiya buff. Tires are airbrushed very lightly by mr.color tire black. I also used on this truck some PE parts from Czech truck model. All chrome parts are dechromed and covered by Spaz Stix Mirror Chrome for airbrush.
  13. Alclad is for me also problematic. I tried Spaz Stix...and it is awesome. I recommend it! Try to watch on y.utube, Spaz stix vs. Alclad, or How to apply Spaz Stix...
