This is the AMT Lousville delivery truck, I'm building it as a hazardous materials responce unit converted from an old beverage truck.

Well since you asked, I did some more work on it today, this is only the first coat of paint but its coming along.

The holes in the back are windows, I was thinking about actually putting an interior in the back but I'm just going to tint them. With the way I braced the box I decided an interior is just too much work for something that would be hard to see the detail, maybe next time I'll plan on larger windows or a removable top section.

Aaron.
What kit did you bash to get that light bar from? I'd like to get one of those! In the past I've always used the Ghostbusters Caddy kit for this style light bar

Thanks for the comments

Trailer Mech, the light bar is an aerodynic style that originally came from a police kit (Joker Goon Car / Gothom PD kit I think). I cast some in clear resin awhile back, its a solid casting instead of having seperate base and lenses like the original but I drilled out holes from below to make it look like there are rotators inside.

Well its almost there, I was going to put a red stripe down the side but I may leave it off. I'm thinking it looks more like a rebuilt beverage truck without the stripe and the roll ups are proving to be a pain in that regard anyway.

Very nice build Aaron! Scratchbuilding can be FUN!

Now... you need a diorama showing a spilled coke on the ground and the hazmat guys standing around in their suits looking at it... 8)
Huh?
