|The Zebrano cab rear has no detail, and it's very thin. I broke|
mine - you can see the crack - and I also noticed that the small

|I drew a template for the wooden slats on my computer and|
printed it out to scale, just to make sure I got everything
nice and even!

I'm thinking I may have to use a good primer before adding the base coat.
Anyway, that's another little detour on the interesting journey that is Zebrano's YaG-6!
End note: A big thank you goes to Oliver Missing of 'Engines of the Red Army' who has kindly allowed me to use his wonderful illustrations. His web site is undoubtedly one of the best sites for colour reference of WW2 Soviet war machines.
