Hello everyone! Coming back from long Russian New Year holidays with a freshly built model!

This is a very nice 1/25 Revell kit, didn't required a lot of sanding and filling, also details fit great.

One more time I decided to paint it ratty style. The body was painted with water based acrylics using brush only - I had a very interesing experience doing this.

Added some wiring and plumbing to the engine, this kit comes with a cool straight six.

Also added tailgate locks and chains and wood boards to the bed.

The grille was cut to look like a grille, not like a solid plate as it comes in the kit. This "moustache" grille is the thing I like most about this old Chevy trucks.

I had a chance to take some winter pics outside, although it was a little bit cold.

Your questions and comments are welcome!

Great build. A very tired looking old work truck.  Your extra effort with the grill and bed chains make it look very realistic. Your outdoors pictures ad to the effect.

The cut out grill really made a difference looks great. I might not have weathered the interior the same amount as the exterior but that's a small point. I quite like the outdoor photos. Adds a level of realism to the truck.
