GAZ | 53 | old boy

GAZ 53 (ГАЗ 53), known also as « Gazon » is a Russian 3.5 Tone 4x2 truck. As you know, GAZ is the abbreviation of Gorkovski Avtomobilni Zavod, a automotive factory in Nizhni Novgorod. The light truck GAZ 53/52 it was firstly introduced in 1961. Main power unit was an old Russian 6 cylinder in line engine, developing 75 hp (56 kW). The truck was produced until 1989.

The model I present is @ 1|43 diecast ready-made produced by the Russian die-cast collectible maker, Nash Avtoprom (Наш Автопром). Its speciality are 1|43rd reproductions but it has several 1|18th very good models. The prices are to an « affordable » level. Due to reasonable price, there are some challenges for the advanced modellers in order to have a « true to reality » model in their display.

I chose the exactly opposite way of treatment: the weathering.

But I wrote enough! Enjoy the ride!
