SS-1C SCUD B with MAZ-543 TEL DRAGON 1/35 BOX PACKAGE I’ll build this Russian Scud missile and 8-wheel large military vehicle. This kit was released long ago. Since it was before the era of the smart kit and premium edition that was a large amount of photo-etched parts are contained, I was prepared for difficult assembly. Words were bad, but more than I had imagined… The strong appealing is satisfactory very much and seems to be awakened to the charm of the large vehicles.

SS-1C SCUD B with MAZ-543 TEL DRAGON 1/35 MAKING Well, when assembling parts like this mountain, it will look like a package… Although it is before assembling, it looks like a rough kit.

SS-1C SCUD B with MAZ-543 TEL DRAGON 1/35 MAKING Cut the soft vinyl chloride plate yourself and paste it from the inside into the window frame. I’m not a window frame craftsman, so I wonder whether it will work out that way.

SS-1C SCUD B with MAZ-543 TEL DRAGON 1/35 MAKING I wrote something sarcastic as a bad thing above, anyway, it is a fun kit to build. Always keep an airbrush on one side, I roughly masked the windows and painted the inside of the vehicle with white, touch up with the brush only around the window.

SS-1C SCUD B with MAZ-543 TEL DRAGON 1/35 MAKING Finally, when the driver’s compartment is over, the next is the missile fire control system room. This kit includes almost the interior.

SS-1C SCUD B with MAZ-543 TEL DRAGON 1/35 MAKING Because the axle seems to be rather weak, I filled up the gaps with plastic putty, super glue was also used, and more putty was added and firmly fixed. The direction of the tire did not change from the first, as I could not see the tire backside very much, I thought to make it firmly. I was relieved when all the eight wheels were grounded cleanly.

SS-1C SCUD B with MAZ-543 TEL DRAGON 1/35 MAKING I am afraid that I do not know whether assembling is failing or going well until I combine the last big module on the chassis.

It seems like I’m reading a mystery novel, building pace keeps fast. Actually, I got tired a little.

SS-1C SCUD B with MAZ-543 TEL DRAGON 1/35 MAKING I moved to the production of something like a jack or crane on which to place a missile. Cautious assembly is necessary here.

SS-1C SCUD B with MAZ-543 TEL DRAGON 1/35 MAKINGThough it is to be said from the old days, Dragon’s instructions do not count on as many mistakes. I imaged and assembled it with feeling.
