Good day, colleagues. For a review, I offer you a fresh build. Somehow it took me to the 43rd scale. I've been wanting to make a fire truck for a long time. The cherished box from AVD was bought a long time ago, the hands reached recently. The beginning of the assembly was marked by the purchase of a set of photo etching and a set of fire equipment from Petrograd, because what AVD offers did not fit into any gates. Like all AVD models, the assembly involves a lot of sawing, a lot of skinning and a lot of grinding. From the self-made - I redid the fastening of the stairs. Slightly modified the handles on the body Remade the "matyugalnik"(Speaker) Modified the roof of the cabin I made a kind of walkie-talkie with a wire inside (something is even visible on a couple of photos) Well, the use of photo etching and fire equipment, which is written above) Coloring - Tamiya X-7, Tamiya LP-2, a little Akan The prototype was chosen by chance (I liked the photo =)) Enjoy your viewing. And some photos before painting) And prototype
Hey, I just saw a superb build on Facebook based off of a 1/43 AVD kit. Short look on scalemates.com and ebay doesn't show many on sale, not to mention reviews. Are these worth the relatively high price tag put on them (~50 Euro)? I understand they are partially metal, partially plastic. Anyone build any and care to share the experience? Thanks a lot!
