RichO Posted June 28, 2021 Share Posted June 28, 2021 Hey Everybody, I'm starting a new build. This build will be a very large scratchbuild 1/25 scale ex-military truck turned civilian crane truck. SO! ' you ever have one of those moments when the "New Model Syndrome" hit so hard you can't get anything else done. I never had until now. I have always finished a build before I start an other. Something happened I can't explain with this one tho. I found these two photos. ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!!!!! I never recovered, and have spent the last three or more months getting the references I need for this build. Crane KS-6571 + Maz-543! Seeing how my fascination with BIG Russian Trucks has taken over my build site, I might as well do something about this right now, and add another build to the insanity of the, "Insane Truckworks" of my build desk. As it turns out, I have found a ton of references and vector drawings for Maz man. However, I have only found photos so far for Crane Jane. Remember the Maz-357 build? I'm not sure if I posted this build here. This was built at 1/20 scale and measured 32cm. the Frog-7... measures 35cm at 1/25 scale. A smaller scale at 1/25 than the Maz at 1/20 scale. But a larger truck model. This new beast will be the biggest model I have ever built. At 1/25 scale, the naked frame alone, will measure at 46cm!! and another 15-20cm for all the overhang. That's bigly huge for my work desk. And I'm also hoping that Jane will reach about 90cm tall when fully extended. I'm really excited to start this scratch build, giant Work Truck. I'll build the most tedious parts first. Starting with... TIRES!!! I hope I get some interest, and maybe some of you guys will like another large truck amongst your aircraft. I'll be back shortly with tires. Rich 7 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
