JeroenS Posted December 18, 2019 Share Posted December 18, 2019 Hi all, this is wrapping up the build of MiniArt's GAZ-AA cargo truck. It was my first MiniArt kit and they do live up to the name. The kit has a huge amount of parts for something this size, and is very detailed. The only thing I added were some wires and such on the engine. I enjoyed myself immensely and feel that my skills have improved just by building this kit. The fit of the parts is excellent, but the truck does not exactly fall together, you really have to work it. This has nothing to do with the quality of the parts but rather that there are so much of them ... Also, cleanup takes quite a bit of time because you really have to be careful with these small bits of plastic (and PE). I can certainly recommend the kit to anyone who has a love for this type of trucks. It's well worth the effort. You can do 8 different versions, 7 of which are green so I chose the odd one out. The paint for cab and loadbed is Vallejo's Green Ochre, the chassis and running boards are Vallejo Black. German Grey for the tyres. For weathering I only used paint, again Vallejo, gun metal, alu, light grey, orange brown, medium brown and such. All paints applied with brushes. You can find the build here: Anyway here are some pics. I struggled a bit to get some decent ones, it's a bit dark and I need better (brighter) lamps (or just better skills, could be that) so some are better than others. Well, the first one is pretty good but that's thanks to Flickr's photo editor, it didn't work for all of them. Full album here Thanks for watching! 27 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
