build this truck to be a shop truck for my future garage diorama . Very old Tamiya kit but a very interesting subject. build it like it is a 25 years old delivery truck. made the rear door functional by drill the hinges.

NIce work! I remember seeing this kit in the old Tamiya catalogs. We don't have the real ones here.

Nice work. Great weathering.

It is a curbside. It has the bottom half of the engine molded into the separate frame. It actually would not take much to add an engine.

Kit hasn't been available for some time but eBay auctions usually go for $40-50.

Neat build...those funky little vans are interesting.  I remember seeing this kit in a Tamiya catalog from around 1996.

yes, a simple curbside kit. This kit is hard to find even in Asia. Got it off the local e-bay and the box has been in a humid environment over say 25 years. it was rough and the decals are all yellow. But I build this kit when i was young and the result was not good. This is a like a revenge build. Also good for a shop truck in a garage diorama.
