    I had this kit in the closet for some time. It seemed exciting but rather too hard to build with all the details. But I wanted a small project so opened it up and gave it a shot.


    With a small brush, I applied a layer of a grey primer. These are all the parts and the kit is actually pretty simple. You need super glue to join it all.



    3. With a small brush I applied a layer of a yellow color. Later I went back and dry brushed black to represent dirt and white for highlights. In some places I added a hint of brown for rust. Overall the painting was easy and unlike other vehicles, this was simpler as there as no 'glass'. The fact it can be dirty made me less worried about an unclean paint job too.



    And done. I recommend this little kit for a fun and quick build.
    Just another n-scaler.

    Hey everyone. Its been a while since ive been on here. But as a small glimpse, here is my update. Currently have one layout under construction which i have not done much since January or February. But otherwise I am now also trying to work out a design for a small 2' x 4' layout in Nn3. I want to make it partially Dual guage which is why I am still planning......
