Hello everyone!

I'd like to introduce you a modelcar build from Russia. I finished it a year ago. That was a 1/25 scale snap-kit by Revell with quite poor detailization. I just added some details as resin tires, mud flaps from sandpaper, antennas, steel rope on a winch, chain on a front bumper. Also carried some work on the winch itself. Headlights were replaced by new ones. I used decals from the box, but they were cut on my demand. Weathering effects were made using plaster and enamel paints.

By the way there's another truck featuring on some photos - GMC plow truck by Revell, 1/24 scale, that was my previous build.

Hope you'll enjoy this one! Best regards, Dmitry.

WOW! The weathering on your truck looks amazing. If it was photographed outside in the right setting it would pass for the real thing. Well done.

Thank you! The headlights are made by "Elf" - one of Russian aftermarket manufacturers. And the tires set is a resin copy of tires from Mitsubishi Pajero Sport kit by Tamiya. Just had to cut them a little from the inner side to fit rims.

Those are absolutely fantastic! The weathering and details are very realistic.The way you took them to a much higher level of details is incredible.

 

I am always amazed at how builders of US model subjects from Europe can render such great results when they don't have these vehicles laying around like we do here in the US. Doesn't matter if it is a '60's muscle car, trucks like these or any other subjects, the details and execution are outstanding!

Thank you, Mike! You're right, we don't have this vehicles much around. Even though we have a couple of American young-timers here in Lipetsk, but they are kind of exotic cars for small Russian town. That's why Ihad to look through a lot of photos and listed trucks for sale. It was quite educative :)
