Now here's something that's a tad different, suppose you could call it a 'Butchers Light Order Ford Model T' truck, looks like the box on the rear was swiped from an old horse drawn vehicle and just plonked onto the back of the Model T.
Needed a bit of light hearted relief, getting a bit of burn out from all the scratch-building, so, I liked the look of the Ford Model T in the first photo, very soon had a box full of plastic bits on the bench and about three weeks later, this appeared on the workbench.
Sorry, just couldn’t help myself, I just had to take to the box of bits and rearrange them, just to make it a lot more interesting, instead of slamming/whacking bit ‘A’ onto bit ‘B’.
Glueing these box full of plastic bit’s together is just S-o-o-o-o-o easy, really can’t see why others have any problems with slamming them together.
The biggest headache was doing the art work for the decals, all done in-home using CorelDraw and then printed out on an ALPS MD5500 printer.

It is always amazing how many variants of this originally only black vehicle are there and this model is a successful variant. Thanks for showing.

Satisfactory. Why not white tires as in the original photo? -- Russ

The black tyres came with-in the box of bits, thought about the 'white tyres', ---------- but got a headache just thinking about them.
So decided I could do with-out any more painfull headaches and just used what came in the box.  Grin Grin Grin Grin

Greenie, "butchering" that kit certainly dressed it up nicely. Even when you're taking a break, you do exceptional artwork.
