Hello
Since I've scratched correct 1/35 scale UB-32-57 rocket launcher for my resin URAL 4320 "Broom" rocket guntruck upgrade set, I receifed a few requests about this launcher for Libyan pickups. so.. vox populi- vox dei. I've started building Meng's Pick-up for this project..

I've been toying with this idea for ages now, but in 1/24th scale. Looks great so far, look forward to more!

The taped magazines in the right hand Kalashnikov are the plastic type (no ribs) and should be a red/brown colour. AKMs - identifiable by the dimple above the magwel as oposed to AK47s (slot above the magwell) have brown plastic pistol grips.

Incredible weathering on the truck body.

The chipping on the rear looks really good. How did you do it? By using hairspray??
