Kremenchuk’s Heavy Metal
Believe it or not, this is the first ground vehicle model I finished in my adult life. It used to be that I would only consider flying objects as my potential hobby victims, but as we can all see times are changing…
This model is based on two kits from the Ukrainian company Armory in 1:72 scale: the KrAZ-258 Saddle Truck and the accompanying TZ-22 Heavy Airfield Refueler, trailer. Both kits are primarily resin, with extensive support from photo-etched parts.
I won’t bore you much with details, for that you can look In the Group posts for Diorama; here: http://imodeler.com/groups/dioramas/forum/topic/in-search-of-a-better-tittle/
You see, this truck is supposed to be a part of a bigger scene that is still in making, so expect more on come…
Oh, If you are wondering about the title, KrAZ stands for “Kremenchutskyi Avtomobilnyi Zavod”, or Kremenchuk Automobile Plant.
