Apologies to regular visitors for the long break in posting … The Society of Ancients BattleDay and the Museum and Gallery’s Friends AGM have dominated the agenda for the Spring …
This quick note could be entitled ‘tired of waiting’ as Zvezda did list a Zis-42 half track (I think for release in 2012) but it seemed to drop of any schedule subsequently … so, always keen on variety, and wanting more winter gear, I have made my own.
Almost everything that isn’t Zvezda’s original plastic is thin or thick card, I opened up the windows and put a small plastic one at tilt on the windscreen. And there is a Milliput insulation jacket over the engine.
I took some photos along the way so will try to assemble them into a feature on the modelling page.
Some features were fiddly on this ‘figure it out as you go’ project – and I might do things differently if I need any more. Then again, I think it looks like a reasonable 1:100 version of the original (and is a tick in another box)
