BIG MERCEDES 5
After about 6 weeks of hobby time, this Italeri 1:24 scale Mercedes Benz 2238 is now complete. As explained in previous posts, there have been a few challenges along the way, in terms of the kit and my improvised working arrangements of the past two months. Without access to most of my usual tools, paints and materials, things probably took a little longer, but I'm very happy with the results, especially in terms of the finish (achieved almost entirely without an airbrush) and all the extra scratch-built details.
I'd have liked to created a more relevant identity for the truck, with logos and markings, rather than using a variety of spare decals from other kits. But, to be honest, I was getting impatient to finish the truck and the whole project had been undertaken with a spirit of fun rather than slavishly recreating a specific prototype.
Aside from 'day job' projects currently on the go, I'm also trying to finish another 1:24 truck - a DAF 95, featuring a scratch-built flat bed conversion. More of that anon...
