URAL ..P18

Ural 4320   P18 Radar  conversion
This model won a gold medal at telford smw 2010
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 array is made from styrene tube with a brass bar inserted down the center,
The aerials are etch brass that i had made in scotland the support cables are from carbon fiber rod.

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
