1945 WWII Soviet Dual Axle Transport Truck

Heng Long/WPL are now manufacturing 1/16 scale RC trucks, so it seemed sensible to create a forum area dedicated to the amazing things that members are doing with them. Post your builds, mods, and tips here.

Just to clarify something, "Imperial Modellbau" and "Hagens Miniatures" can be found on the same site. :thumbup:

Evening all!
Thank you, gentlemen! More work to do, lots of detail and getting the electronics sussed out so I can reassemble the truck to finish up the paint and markings. Then comes the arty!
regards,

Evening,

Quick one, where did you obtain the wheels/tyres?

They look amazing.

Good evening, Meatball,
The wheels and tires came from the Forums very own Max-U52. Send him a PM and see what he says. ;o)

Absolutely brilliant work! Those lights and lenses are fantastic and the wooden bed and box are very impressive

PS: A few clean pics ( daylight assist ) of the completed Truck. All that remains is to weather the vehicle and then build the towed field piece.

Carl!
Thanks for looking in my friend! Trucks are not usually exciting but I have tried to gather up some fun aspects of those Lend Lease vehicles and get them rolling on one chassis. The Arty is up next and looking through the instructions for this older kit, i was pleased to see it rolls and has moveable trails for transport mode. I might have to suss out a stouter tow hook for the gun but the kit should be a (lot simpler than the truck ) simple assembly, paint and weather kit.
regards,
Painless

Good morning, xhelfix,
Thank you for looking in! I've got a couple of American Halftracks to work on when the truck bug hits again later. One year soon, I want to get an Asiatam Opel Blitz or Maultier to add to my collection. I have another couple of WPL trucks set aside but they won't get a build done unless someone comes out with a Vietnam Gun Truck kit to modify them with.
regards,
Painless
