GMC (CCKW 353) with Bofors 40mm AA gun - HobbyBoss -1/35 part 01

I bought this kit at the end of last year and when the box arrived in my home, my belly-worms simply stirred up. I love trucks and this model caught my attention as something different from the old Italeri and Heller CCKW kits.
         In short, I could not resist the call of the truck and I began to build, just as see my bench vacated and clean.
With you, the CCKW 353 of 2 and 1/2 tons, with a 40mm Bofors anti-aircraft gun in the back. This arrangement fought in Europe at the end of WWII, in the hands of the Free French.

Box content

Instruction booklet (very good)

decal sheet

Rope, decal and photo-etched (very good, indeed...)

Starting the building...One interesting thing: the pieces are stuck in trees according to the sequence number. It may seem silly, but very helpful in quickly mounting. Prevents us to be wasting time looking for a part in the tree at random way. I loved the HobbyBoss solution.
The engine...very well detailled..
The chassi parts  are very well injected. No bendings!

 Using the photo-etched parts:
Rear bumpers in metal
 Dry-run with the wheels (injected, no vinyl...and polycaps...) to perfect alignement...

 Dry-run with wheels to alignement...

This is it, until now !!!

Tchau, Pessoal !!!
