Hi all,

This is A 1/72 scale model of an S-300PM Grumble that i built in a what if Syrian Army scheme.

The model is made by Modelcollect and has beautiful features and detail.

Hyder,

Excellent job on what many consider a somewhat difficult kit due to its lack of locating pins/features for parts alignment. It would have been interesting for us to see a few in-progress build pictures if not a full Blog in the Braille Scale Sub-Forum here. I see you also included images of a couple of other Russian trucks including the Iskander-K cruise missile version. I for one would be interested to see a couple more images of these other trucks. I take it they are ModelCollect also? Thanks for sharing and hope to see more of your work in the future.

Cheers,
--Jan

Thank you for your kind comments.

I will show you some in progress pictures of s-300 and the other trucks.

I am about to sell them on Ebay so i can build better ones.

I live the engine interior, however this will be covered up.

This is a picture of the s-300 withe the iskander-k while i was building them both.

This is a problem with the model part...


20180621_180303

...As you can see. but a good modeler always has a way around this sort of problem.

This is how i masked the camouflage while spraying the firing tubes.

These are the only in-progress pictures i have, since i usually like to get on with building rather than taking the time to intricately documenting the build.
