With me in lockdown and modelling is getting tight due to a lack of bits I have been scrounging around in the parts bins for stuff.

Me and the missus sorted out one of the sheds so I can store static parts for our home and away club events, at the back I found a WPL truck box with the cab and trailer-I had used the chassis and running gear on the Chinese RC APC.

After further rummaging I came across a 1/18 truck chassis so with plenty of hacking and cussing I managed to mate the two together and then set to in detailing etc.

The front wheels turn and the whole lot moves but it is going to be just a static piece next to one of the large barns.

Of course, as I do with most of models I tend to go back and add and basically faff with them...this will probably be no exception :smiling:
