RAF Fuel Truck 1/35 scale Almost scratch built.
August 14, 2014 in Aviation
This was not a easy build, but I had to do it. Here is the list.
I started with a quad tractor. Cut off the back and capped it.
Scratched the chassis and added dual wheels to the rear.
Tank was made of evergreen plastic with a lot of Micro Mark rivet decals and a few scribes of my own.
Fill hatch on top and a generic boom assembly.
I stole (acquired) the hose spools from a German 88mm cannon.
The black reel is for the static electricity ground.
Rear bucket stolen (acquired) from the mess hall.
Somehow it all came together to what you see here.
The photos were taken outside my factory diorama. You will probably see this again, a lot of manufacturing goes on here.
Painted in the early RAF colors. A few years later she was repainted in the famous
Mickey Mouse camo.
This is a single boom. Later models were fitted with dual.
This build took about four months on and off but was a fun one.
I hope you enjoy!
