This model is a 1:56 scale representation of the iconic WW2 era AUSTIN K5 military vehicle, respected for its vital role in supporting Allied forces.
For the wargamer using 28mm figures in their historical gaming this very useful Allied truck is just one of my range of 1:56 scale resin cast pieces that are designed to help you create all sorts of interesting scenarios in your tabletop gaming. Whether terrain, building, vehicle or detail accessory you are sure to find lots of unique pieces in this collection of scale miniatures. As a keen gamer myself, I understand the importance of accuracy and realism in models for historical wargaming plus the need for speed from purchase to table top. I have tried to make as many of my models as I can requiring no assembly. Some do, but I have tried to keep the parts to as few pieces as possible. All are supplied unpainted giving you the opportunity to personalise it with a paint scheme that fits your own game's era and theatre. The final look is up to you. Also have a look at the 1:48 scale section for items that fit better with larger figures.
1:56 for 28mm.4 piece quick kit. Assembly required.
Dimensions: Length 105mm Width 41mm Height 56mm.
"To achieve a similar finish to this model, I first applied a primer to ensure the paint would adhere well. Next, I covered the main body in a matte field green, using a small brush to reach the finer details and crevices. For the canvas cover on the back, I opted for a khaki shade, adding subtle highlights to simulate wear and fabric folds. The windows received a light blue tint to suggest reflection. Weathering was done sparingly with a dry-brushed application of a lighter dust colour on the tyres and lower body to depict operational use. Finally, a protective matte varnish was used to seal the paintwork and add durability." - Stuart
