Broken-down cargo truck - April 2013

Luis Felix, Calexico, California

Luis describes his 1/35 scale vignette: “I used Tamiya’s U.S. 2 1/2-ton 6 x 6 cargo truck “Red Ball Express” by Tamiya with a GMC 6 x 6 update set and Sherman M4A3 engine and compartment from Verlinden, a military field tool shop from Italeri, hand tools from Aber, and Warriors figures. I know a bit of auto mechanics, so I tried to elaborate on the brake system, from the brake pads to the wheel nuts, and detailed the truck and tank engines to make them more realistic. I also wanted to represent the wear on the truck in general.” Luis worked his magic with Tamiya and artist’s oil paints plus Mig pigments.
