    Something we were discussing at work today... sometime within the last ten or fifteen years, "styling cues" became "design vocabulary". Why? This is what happens when you put the art majors in the marketing department instead of in the styling department.

    The model appears to be based on an Italeri European truck. There is some debate, but the 1:1 Dipmobile appeared to be based on a WW2-era six-ton Military truck, likely a White 666. It has also been I'd as a GMC CCKW, though the cab appears closer to what the six-ton rigs used. Either way it is difficult to tell as so much of the truck is obscured. There are no 1:24 WW2 military trucks of these types in kit form, likely why the builder of this model went with a much later-model kit as the base of the model.

    Any variation of "vape".

    A Roman walks into a bar, holds up two fingers and says "five beers, please".

    W-O-W...

    Well, then... the Esci Transit is coming back. And Italeri is the company making it happen. 
     
    I hereby take back 95% of all the less-than-favorable things I've ever said about Italeri.

    Is it just me, or does the dump truck in the first pic look a tad Kenworth-y? (Not bashing it, just wondering out loud. )

    Thanks guys! I had a blast building this, and it helped to take my mind off some of the more "serious" stuff I had going on at the moment. Modeling certainly is theraputic!
    Just because I can, and because I had to test out my new camera (Kodak AZ251), here's another jaunty-angle pic.

    Very cool!
    As I was scrolling through the pics I swore I could hear Richard Rawlings letting out one of his characteristic yelps.

    I love the Crackerbox and LTL, but every time I look at the pics of the W everything goes into slow-motion and the chorus of "Beautiful" by James Blunt starts playing in my head. Please, please, PLEASE say you're going to let somebody cast that one, at least!

    Fine, I don't.  I am hearing the opening score from "Inglorious Basterds" for some reason, though!
    Very nicely done.

    I'll keep it in mind.

    1961 Morris Mini Pickup
    This is the Tamiya Morris Mini Cooper Rally car kit, combined with the long-gone Scale Kraft pickup transkit. I used the wheels from the Austin Mini Cooper- they're not prototypically correct for a pickup, but they're about the closest thing to a plain BMC steel wheel you can find. I used the knobby tires from the rally kit on the drive axle and the regular tires in back. There are still a few doodads I'd like to add, but it'll pass for finished for the time being.

    The flanks on this kit can be wavy enough to induce mild seasickness, but that slick black paint job proves you managed to take care of them.

    Double ditto.
