    Well, it is hard to transfertransfer COE paint scheme on such conventional. Genelal hood sides slightly higher, then TopKick's, so it not so easy too. Perhaps Ford L-series have similar hood and that schemes in the bottom of first page will suits TopKick.....         I should think it over.                               Thank you Russell anyway!

    Sorry for my 50 cent to the converstion. If I have an International S-series, I would build a safe on wheels (a bank truck). Sertanly it wasn't offen.

    So, the steering wheel has been remade. I used the rim from Ford LNT kit. The rest of steering wheel are styrene, epoxy patty, wire, piece of sprue. Though Ford's rim is 1mm bigger, then TopKick one should be it has an ideal cirkle.

    I also made the gear shift lever.

    Here is how it should be:

    I also filed down the bottom and back side of the dash. Now it sitssits a litle lower.

    Almost like at home. Erly Tahoe and Silverado have the same cab and dash.

    The model will be the same as a dump truck on first photo, except the high rooth and some decals for the doors.
    You're reading my mind. I planed to use AMT Ford kit for chassis and dump body, but Ford's frame is differs from GMC's. It has higher frame spar piece in the middle. So I use KFS frame. I show you later. Dump body will be reworked too for modern style.  I already bought Evergreen strips.

    So, the bottom of back wall of the cab has filled up:

    Almost finised on the left side, not on the right. Here is the original:


    Door pockets and elbow-rest are up graded too:

    '90s GMC TopKick C7500
    Hello my dear colleagues!
    I haven't write here for a long time....
    As I am American Medium Duty  trucks fan, I can't stand to work (make a model) on this one.
    :

    The only thing I will change is the rooth. I like standart one. And I not sure about the bumper. May be I will use the stock one. I bought the resin on e-bay couple years before. I guess it's Perry's:

    The grill is fited to suit.

    There are couple fuel tanks and acumulator boxes in kit. Plus chequered plates and buckles for hood and boxes in separate bag:

    I like this kit. Quality of the cast rather high. No boubles.

    There is pimple on a back wall, like the real cab has. Also bottom line need correction.

    Door handles are made through


    Interior tub is flat as usuall.

    I have PDF with dimensions, so I can say the scale of a kit is something between 1/24 and 1/25.

    Toolbar sits rather high. Next photo shows it better.

     The steering wheel is too small for this truck. It's a pitty - no head lights lenses or wind screen in a kit. No instruction too.....
