Thank guys for your comments. Here's eight photos of the model in it's composite stage. I will start painting and then add the remaining detail.
For the engine I used a Minicraft Model Kits  1931 Ford Model A ,for the pattern. The engine is a four-cylinder with a generator and electric starter.

A lot of people like the appearance of unpainted brass models. Your mix of materials brings out another, very special quality, that appeals much more to me. Nevertheless I'm looking forward to see it painted. Maybe I missed it somewhere: what have the vertical beams withe the rollers been used for? Was it for raising the truck bed? Must have taken some serious stress to the fixing point lacking some bevel braces. Inspite of them being static models yours always look like they could set off any time.

Cheers,
Volker

Thank guys for your comments.
Barney...1:16 scale is a lot of fun. I build a steam crane back in the early 70's in 1:48 scale that would have been a lot better model in 1:16 scale. I  miss not having Simsons and Trackside Details casting and products. I wish I had gotten  my last order to Trackside Details out before they went out of business. 
Volker... The vertical posts are for raising the truck bed. I waited to add the bracing until the cable was added to get the bracing in the right place.
Here's two photos of the mechanical for the bed hoist and the under body turn table,
