Soviet ZIS5 truck

This time, I made a ZIS5 truck in my spare time. Originally, I wanted to make GAZ truck, but GAZ body has too many curved parts, which is very troublesome to make.And it requires a lot of printing parts, it's expensive, and lately I'm too poor to build it,
But the soviets needed trucks, so I decided to make the ZIS5, which was simpler and cheaper.
It's easy, but trucks are the hardest thing to do, and it takes about twice as much work as tanks.
My step is to make the engine first, and the frame structure is also made according to the real car, so basically the structure is exactly the same as the real car, which is completely internal.
Part of the previous process was here:http://bbs.bbicn.com/forum.php?mod=v...ead&tid=354857

Amazing work - thought the pics were reference shots of a real truck at first

Love it. Soviet vehicles don't get as much attention as due their German/American counterparts.

Re: Soviet ZIS5 truck

Very cool!

I wish I had four or five of them for a dio!

Well done on the truck! Love the ЗиС logo on the radiator - and of course, the truck looks great stocked with troops!

Bravo!
