This 1:32 scale truck proved to be a labour of love. Based on the Revell kit, which amounts to a snap-together affair, countless hours were spent adding detail to the chassis frames and bodywork. The original kit parts were basic, to say the least, but after all the effort came the reward. A new set of wheels and tyres from Fujimi added the icing on the cake.
I'm especially pleased with the exhaust stacks, which are the original mouldings, shorn of the thick 'chrome' effect finish and patiently re-profiled and all those holes in the heat shields were drilled-out by hand. I certainly got good value from my RP Toolz hex bolt and washer punch and die sets - the extra detail relief on the chassis mainframes really makes a difference.
