Thank you Force. I have written to MGM, but haven't got any answer. I guess they don't object me to use movie trucks photo in my article.

Thanks to every one!

I'm sorry, but I must move my photos of the board for a while. They will back in couple months after article issue. If you need them sooner please PM me.

If anyone would like to obtain some etched parts from this project, come here:

Hello fellows!

Long time...

Sorry, I have finished this project some months before, but forgotten to upload it here.

Side moldings were made by using Evergreen's halfround rods:

Like that:

Added strip back side

Little closer:

The vagon glued together:

In front:

Roll door replaced to the left and glued a piece of sheet styrene (something like a van door) on the right:

The chassis was made almost out of the box. Just altered under roll bar and cut frame rails (marked)

Added winch crane, rolls and vent doors handles (marked):

winch crane turned up

After white primer I sprayed the van with black. Dust, soot and time:

Inside - too

The first rusting was bad

So I decided to apply transparent layer first....

217_zpsc713dabf.jpg

then more solid layer....

220_zps927f6757.jpg

...wiped with cotton swab and dissolver later.

Anyway it turned out too much. I should improve my skills in weathering next time

Laths of jalousie are glued on adhesive rubber tape and sprayed by Testor’s “wood” color. When it dries laths were treated with white mate & grey mate by dry brush. So we got weather-stained effect

I was have to anneal KFS mesh over the flame (gas-stove) because it broke along the perforation while bending:

225_zps765b5749.jpg

Added aerials and susie holder (marked)

227_zpsedd2db8f.jpg

As I painted Alclad just on brass parts it was wiped off some places during manipulations. So I spray it localy.

Here it is on anual exhibition

By hte way, figure was treated with PVA and tissue paper

234_zps417ed8a9.jpg

I made over Paulie's trousers and shirt this way.

235_zpsd3a83739.jpg

Before that hands and fingers were cut...

231_zps50599a90.jpg

...and reshaped with epoxy

233_zps49ea315e.jpg

Note that tissue paper should be all soaked in PVA or you will get this effect after priming

Altering face was the hardest work (take a look at starting face - previous page)
