    Lots of lessons in this build, including how some simple tools make all the difference (and how their absence (due to being stuffed away someplace ) makes you relearn a lot of basic techniques real quick!!).

    This was not as clean a build as I'd have liked. That having been said, and looking at the prices of p*****c or resin kits of this vehicle in 1:35, I am OK with the result.

    Hope you all are too!!

    Regards from the NW Coast of Canada

    Close Enough For Government Work!!

    Barry:
    Thanks for the comments! The weathered look comes primarily from a BBT (Brutal Building Technique) that results from the model actually having been built on a folding plastic table in our new kitchen.

    It is in 1:35 scale.

    Touchpaper? OMiG, do not let the Sovz know about that secret.....

    :)

    Mark: Thanks! Figures, as far as I am concerned, give life to a model.

    Thanks for the kind words!

    Your B-52 rescale was some great piece of work, as was your SA-2.

    The "tractor plant" is now shut down for a month, as I will be building a new workshop here in "Canada's Hawaii". Besides, I have been threatened with divorce and/or other forms of grievous bodily harm if I dare build another card model in Jill's kitchen....

    I would like to contact you offline about working with some of the older Maly kits. If agreeable, you can PM me thru the forum. OK?

    Jim
