Way back in June last year I posted the build of this, the Revell M35A2 military truck, as part of the My First Airfix Group Build, (I couldn't get hold of mine, so I did the My First Model ever...)

Allan (AKA The Master) said "Looks like all it needs is a good, careful paint job !!!....."
Well time passes and it's finally done I'm pretty happy considering the kit dates from 1958 or so

I added a few bits and pieces from wire or plastic card

Finished in Humbrol Authentic olive drab, hand painted coat of acrylic varnish and Humbrol matt varnish which came out wonderful when the gloop at the bottom of the jar was stirred good and proper. The kit decals were a joke, but I put them on anyway.

HyperScale's Group Build Guidelines

The objective of this Group Build is to encourage as many modellers as possible to build their kits and share their progress via words and photos on this Forum.

You are welcome to post general construction tips or relevant reference information and photos to this Forum too.

This Group Build will feature Airfix, Frog and Matchbox kits.

  1. Build as many kits as you like

  2. Conversions, aftermarket and scratchbuilding are all permitted.

  3. Any markings are acceptable.

  4. Document your progress and do a write-up on your build - where did you have trouble, what improvements did you make, what markings did you choose and why? It would be GREAT if everyone would do a writeup and submit it to HyperScale as a Feature Article.
