I always liked the transport vehicles especially the IDF transport trucks. When I got the Leyland blueprint and knowing it was difficult that a manufacturer of plastic kits made a release, I thought it was time to build it from scratch. Though it’s not easy to copy a scratchbuilt work, this article aims at sharing with readers the work accomplished, encouraging them to face the process of building a scale model "from scratch".



I started the work with the body front and the cab. Actually, it would have been better to start with the chassis adding then, the rest.

The front of the model was accomplished in a single part gluing so many plastic sheets as it was its width. Then, using sand, I gave the necessary shape.
