I feel like there should be a drum roll and the sound of trumpets at this point, such is the momentousness of the occasion...  Finally, my build of the Italeri 1:24 scale DAF 95 kit is now complete. After countless hours, a few aborted paint jobs and two house moves, I'm really pleased with the outcome, not least with the amount of extra work I've put into getting the truck looking as good as possible. 

Despite keeping the amount of extra detailing work to a minimum - mostly confined to new wheels and an enhanced cab interior - the truck still looks impressive, which is testament to the quality of the kit's components, despite the moulds being a few decades old. I'm especially pleased with the lining and logos on the cab and canvas body, which were improvised mostly from a number of model railway decal packs, as explained in a previous post
I need to take some better portrait photographs when I get a chance, those above were taken with my phone. The finished truck is big, so I'll need to clear some space on the display shelf to show it off...
