I agree that its nice to see a truck that has been used. Excellent weathering.
Thanks. The chipping was super simple. Paint black, then wait for an hour or so, then paint silver. Wait about 20- 30min, then take a sharp hobby knife and scrap away carefully until you get the effect you' looking for.
weathering. Turning the front wheels slightly and angling the model on the base make the whole composition much more dynamic.
This is really the sort of model that captures my (and hopefully other peoples) Imagination, and I think the fact it's just the tractor unit adds to that. It could be at work almost anywhere in the world working in dry weather, It could be used on a construction project or offroad haulage. It certainly looks like it's been working hard although it's been looked after by it's driver despite a horrific enviromment
It's the first model truck I've looked at here, and I'm amazed. Certianly models look better in working clothes than shiny show trucks. Really first class.
Appreciate the kind and imaginative thoughts.
I thought so too. Thanks.
Thanks for the support Andy. Glad you like it.
