  1. Hey All, So this is my first posting of a project in the Armour forum. Altho not an AFV build, it still hauls all you all around. So a good place I thought for a military truck build. I'm coming up from the Sci/Fi and real Space forum. If you have a minute check out my build, 1/72 Crawler. A still in progress build. This is a project that came about as an issue I was having about not feeling as mentally sharp as in years past. I have heard that a person can do brain exercises by getting involved with complex problem solving. Keeping that in mind I have decided to start my MAZ build to overlap my Crawler build. The crawler project still has a ways to go, but over all, I'm just about finished with that project. This will be my secondary build for a while, so not as much time spent on this build, for a bit just yet. I wanted to build this truck project because I really like the big industrial design and feel, and also the scale of this large Russian beauty. I have several different model kits of this subject, so I will be building a conglomeration of what I have and what info I can find on this subject. I have three kits that I will be combining the info from, to scratch build a big model of this big truck. I have a 1/35 plastic version from Trumpeter. I have a 1/25 card version from Model-Kom. And I have a 1/35 card version from E63. The Trumpeter kit. The Trumpeter has the typical great Trumpeter detail to copy from, but really sucks on the design of the model it's self, with no engine and transmission, and just half a transfer case...etc. The list goes on, for the amount of money. The Model-Kom kit. The model-Kom kit has great detail to use as a reference, but I'm not so crazy about the color scheme. I could paint it maybe, but I will hold on to it for another days build. The E63 card kit. This is a download kit from Enrico, in Italy. This is a great super detailed kit. He has some really detailed models, some for free download. A Russian Beauty For a paint scheme I have chosen this beauty to try to copy. I like the original Russian green under the orange paint, and all the weathering. A real opportunity to get crazy with the paint job. The MAZ 537 G build. I took a few days from the crawler build because I had such a lather worked up about starting this project. I wanted to build the frame before I got back to the crawler, and I felt that getting the frame rails put together would be a nice stopping point. I started with cutting out the frame rails. To get thing straight and tight when I build, I sometimes use a set of magnets to hold things square. frame rails. Once I have all the rails put together I trimmed up the ends and glued the rails together. I wanted to maintain the look of the real MAZ frame, which has round bends and open corners where the frame rails are joined.. And to build the front end I had to build a bumper. The parts The front bumper installed. This is the frame that I built as of today. So this is where I decided to stop for now. The frame feels strong and stable and ready to accept the drive train. I will next build the outside frame supports and start with suspension bracing. Be back sometime soon, Rich
