1/25 Ertl International Paystar 350 mine truck
Another case of the dangers encountered while wandering the LHS.
I'd originally planned to super detail this model but reference pics were sparse and there was a considerable amount of straightening, filling, and sanding needed to get it to an acceptable level of finish. The dump box was painted Vallejo dark RLM brown, shot with a coat of chipping fluid, and then painted Mission Models yellow so I could do some brush chipping. Rusty spots on the cab were done with a sponge; I got ahead of myself and did not think to do it like I did the box which is what happens when you don't have a concrete plan.
Yellow paint is very difficult (for me) to work with and I ended up with three different shades of the color on the model, so I gave it a healthy couple coats of AK light enamel dust to hide my lousy paint job. The ability to reproduce the look of the inside of a used dump truck box eluded me, never got it quite right so dyed plaster cast in a sheet and broken up with a hammer came to my rescue.
I know the box sez AMT but this is an Ertl molding, a fact proven by the name on the sprue flags.
