I received this kit for Christmas this year, after wanting it for quite a long while, and decided I could wait no longer, so started it last night. As coincidence would have it, last night was exactly one month since I got it, but I was unaware of that at the time.

Believing that I would eventually get this truck, at some point I order the detailing set. Quite some time later, forgetting that I already bought one, I ordered another, so I have two complete sets to work with. There's a second set as well (with machine gun ring mount), and I think I have one of those too,... somewhere.

Lots of parts! All things considered though, it should go pretty quickly, I think. It'll probably take me longer to build the base, than the model itself.

Kit is not without some pin marks. These (on the cab interior), will need to be dealt with.

Bed is coming along nicely. I'll need to buy some ammo crates though, just for visual variety.

If cab is to be well painted, I'll have to do it in sub-assemblies. This is not my preferred method, but is what needs to be done if this model is to be contest worthy.

I really wish Tamiya had molded these rifle carriers separately, they'd be much easier to paint that way, but I'll do the best I can with them.

For the moment, this is the reference I'll be using, specifically for storage ideas. I've wanted to grab this and this for a while now, perhaps I'll order one of them in February.

Me too, should be fun. I've liked these trucks for a long while, and with a bit of care, they can really look great.

I just recently bought a 4x8 sheet of 3/4" plywood, but only need 12 square feet for my intended home project, so have 20 square feet left over, from which I can make bases for my George, this truck and a few others as well.

Front wheel/tire assemblies all finished now. Still some cleanup to do though.

Looking good so far Kevin ... don't often see these get built, but I'm looking forward to this one.

Lots of wheels. These are all of the completed wheel assemblies, plus the two spares.
