This beautiful little 3d printed model of a Gaz AAA 6x4 truck was mistaken for a ZIS truck leading to a little embarrassment when it seemed to be undersized. The Gaz is smaller than the ZIS by design. I should have realized when its label noted AAA, presumably like batteries, the more As, the smaller it is :-)
But disaster struck and in this wild and wintery weather we are having it was blown out of my hand to smash on the driveway when I took it over to show Richard. Luckily we found all the parts, although it took three goes and Richard's eagle eyes.
This post was started 1 August, but never completed... Until now!
The comparison that caused the angst.

It looks great after its repairs! But I am not sure if it is a lucky truck :) May tend to roll ones a lot.ReplyDelete
I think this fella is destined to be a token. But will have to be kept well away from command rolls.Delete
