Ural 4320receiver/comms vehicle
this truck is one of a pair the second is a p18 which i will post later

This model started out as the revell Ural kit, i used the chassie and cab from the kit and scratch built the rest from styrene sheet, rod,strip and tube.the wheels were made from my own molds out of resin.

The model was painted with humbrol m117 green then the camo was airbrushed on freehand 1st linen then 2nd black over the top of the green.

This was then colourwashed and then drybrushed with lightened shades of the original colours. i then slightly weathered it.

The final finish was a coat of humbrol matt cote.
lots more pictures of this on my web page please take a look

There is a full build blog on www.modelarmour.com for anone interested

Wow! This is very impressive, and a superb job. I can't imagine the effort that went into this. I like it.

looks really good, I'm currently working on a "normal" flatbed version
I'll look into the build right away, maybe some tweaks to be found
