Airfix Matador Truck in 1/72 scale

Another venerable kit from Airfix that I found on eBay for pennies. It is worth it just for the nostalgia and you can never have enough trucks for your troops!

It is still a nice easy kit to build. I did not bother building the gun that comes with the truck and I had to replace awful driver with a better one. I also tried to add windows and a windshield to the cab with varying degrees of success.

The only other issue I came up with was adding decals to the uneven side panels. I think I need to investigate decal softener and see if that helps this kind of situation.

  1. Very nice. You may want to take a look at micro sol and micro set for your decals mate. We’ve used these and had good results, there are videos about them on YouTube.
