UAZ-452D

I painted a funny little truck – UAZ-452D “Golovastik” in 1/35 scale. It is made by a company named AMG and has nothing to do with Mercedes Benz 🙂 The kit’s quality was not the best, but you have no choice if you want to make a plastic model of this interesting looking vehicle.

Type 73 Light Truck

Here comes another of my post-apo vehicles in 1/35 scale – Type 73 Light Truck from Trumpeter. I wanted it not to look like an army vehicle, so I painted it in this terrible turquoise color. The wheels are painted steel/silver (actually NMM). I could not decide to make it with or without the roof, so I converted it to some form of a pickup. This way I could put some salvaged stuff in the back.

The Defender

I enjoyed painting the last vehicle, so I decided to make another one. Here is Land Rover Defender 110 from Hobby Boss in 1/35 scale. It’s not easy to find a civilian vehicle in this scale, so I converted an army one. I made additional windows in the rear section and changed spare tire location. This is supposed to be car prepared for hard times, so I installed metal mesh on the windows and some roof rack. I really liked making all those scratches and damp patches. I wanted the vehicle to look shabby – just as post-apocalyptic car should look like .
