GMC 40 mm bofor gun, HobbyBoss 1/35

Quoting the Hobby Boss website, "The U.S. military decided to ask various companies to create a troops transport vehicle quickly available and convenient. In 1941, the GMC firm won and the production began. . The qualities of this vehicle were numerous: the use of a tarp to cover the cabin provided a real economy, compared to the use of sheet metal. Easily deployable, the GMC CCKW 353 could serve both as a troops transport vehicle, so as a medical evacuation vehicle, food and ammunition resupply vehicle. Sold around the world after the Second World War, the vehicle remained in service in many armies,some of the vehicles equip with the 40mm BOFORS,and working in France."

The model comes with 380 parts on 13 sprues and poly caps; with a length of 22 cm it will stand nicely on your collection.
the kit requires at least some skill, and I would not suggest it to an unexperienced modeler.
Details is good, flash not present, instructions well detailed.
I painted the model using a personal mix of Vallejo Aircolor paints. The weathering was done using AK Interactive washes and MIG pigments.
For base i used a small piece of woos. I masked on it an irregular shape, sprayed some white glue, dropped the synthetic grass, and finally removed the mask.
