Here's my next one. The Reds used these vehicles well in to the 1950s, so I am not calling a year. This will be a fun kit I hope. Certainly not your usual half-track... According to the plans, I will only be using about 2/3 of the sprue. Many crossover vehicle kits I think. --John
I think I'll try to squeeze this one in. It says 'Finnish Army' on the box... No decals...I might try to hand paint something...not sure I'll get to the anti-aircraft gun...I'll give it a go! Sprue tomorrow... --John
Here is the WiP thread... This is the additional kit that comes with the Italeri 1/72nd scale C-119 Flying Boxcar kit, which I built over a year ago and posted in the Aircraft section of BM. For this build I wanted to do something less military so I searched for some good references for surplus firefighting vehicles, the type one might see in forested or mountainous areas. I found plenty. The kit is a fun little number, with fine detail and decent fitting although I did have to fettle and fray a bit here and there. The pump housing, reels, hoses, Indian tank, etc...are all scratch-built. The bucket is from some resin farm gear set I have. The colours are all Vallejo or Vallejo Air and I weathered with oil pin-washing, dry-brushing, and some FloryWash for the tires. The dirt is from the garden is from of my house. All the rest is OOB...or bag, as it were. Many thanks! Now that I am warmed up on vehicles, I'll get into the Rolls armoured car I have been caring around for a few years... --John
