Looking very nice. 1/72? you gone up a scale?



Err yes, Iíve liked the look of these big Russian trucks since I first saw one some many years ago and up until recently you had to go with 1/35 if you wanted one and yes I do have a Meng Smersh in the stash. All that said these trucks in 1/35 are just too big for my flat so when Modelcollect came out with them I had to take a look, these are the first two but there will be more.

Well itís been some time since I posted any builds and thatís because weíll I havenít been building or more correctly finishing anything, well with the latest to hit the bench I hope that will change.

What we have here are two Modelcollect kits.
First is a ĎBAL-Eí on a MZKT chassis, the chassis is ready for paint while the launcher is being finished off.







Second is a S-300PM (SA-10 Grumble) 5P85D launcher this is the slave vehicle and as such has no control cabin. Note that the engine is 14 parts and each axle is between 18-21 parts plus the gearbox and transfer cases all in 1/72!







Sorry for the photo quality all taken with my iPad.
