Here is my captured Canadian Chevrolet truck, field modified as a Flak platform.
I saw in an article in an old issue of Military Modeler Magazine with a captured Canadian truck with an AA gun. During a trip to Florida I bought this kit somewhere close to Orlando, planning to build something close to what I saw in MM. This is the result.
The kit is the Testors/Italeri 1/35 scale Quad gun tractor, item no. 778. I modified it using some spare parts that come with the kit, as follows:
I added some extra equipment and gear, from various sources.
Note that the wheels I glued inverted right X left, the off road tires treads should point forwards.
Painting was done with Tamiya acrylics.
Weathering comprised a dark brown wash, light sand dry-brush, a coat of matt varnish and pastel chalk.
Decals are sourced from Tamiya, and from my spares box.
The photographs were taken using the same vignette base from my Sd.Kfz 223, a landscape photo as background, and natural light.
