    This is an awesome job. I want to build my father a GAZ-69 for his 70 birthday. I have a 2 questions if you dont mind. What kind of a glue do you use? Where do you find the drawings?

    I have been fortunate to actually sit in one of those trucks like you are building there. They are very cool and almost unstoppable in water and mud. Like your work, you are an artist. Now I need to see if I can pull it of for my build.
