Indian Chevy


 

 

 

Simplicity in trucking.


Original: While building the 3 ton Chevrolet on the basis of the LRDG Chevy, I ran into some info on this rudimentary Indian truck. Chevrolet trucks where being shipped to all the corners of the earth and assembled localy. The simple wooden bench was a local addition, and probably the canvas too.

Model: 35th scale Tamiya LRDG chevy with paper towel, wire and some plastic pieces.

Build: April 2009 - september 2013

Paint: Basecoat airbrushed with Tamiya Acryl. Details with acryl and a spray of dust.
