 My idea with this one was to make a shop truck that was a work in progress with a lightly weathered primer paint job but a interior that was finished.

 

The engine is out of a Revell stock car and the rear end from the Revell 32.  Revell Orange Crate wheels with big and little white walls  from Tweety Pie.

 

I machined up a few knick knaks and added various P/E bits from Model Car Garage.

 

Apart from a few fiddly bits this kit builds up without any major drama and for a kit originally from the 80s I believe ?, it still holds up well.
