Rick has recently built a pair of very old 'Fort' Zis-5V kits that he had hanging about. Both models, tanker truck and general cargo vehicle, were done in a distressed winter finish. He added a mattress to the hood of each for additional insulation from the harsh Russian winter. The mattresses were made from Kneadatite two part epoxy putty. Both kits were a bit bare in the detail category but went together relatively easily and fit well. The only place Rick needed any putty or the like was with the large fuel tank and the resulting seams.
