About Emre Efli (emroglan)
FROM: ISTANBUL, TURKEY / TüRKçE

Have been "seriously" modeling since 2002. I build armor and more recently aircraft, as well as some sci-fi when I feel like it.

Emre, Gotta admit, I like the color! The paint deterioration on the bed and the subtle rusting along the door is well done! Nice job!

Really like the weathering on the side of the bed and the rusting on the cab as the well. Well done.

Thanks a lot for the comments. I wanted to build something different and take a break from armor. This was the result. The truck was supposed to be bright blue, but I botched up the paintwork and had to remove that color. My wife decided to choose the second color and for luck she picked her favorite, which happens to be green. I took a break from green military vehicles to build a green civilian truck... duh! The writing at the back literally means "Papa (is) Tired". It is customary for Turkish truckers to have such writing on their trucks. For an old and worn truck, I thought this would be fitting This model was very well received by my non-modeler friends (who didn't like my rusty dusty battle tanks so much), so I might show up with more civilized military vehicles in the future. Behold!
