Calling this one done. From the old pics that I could find, this represents a truck that was driven by the gas company I work for  back in the 60’s.  It was painted with same pagoda green that was used back then. This is the second company truck I’ve built and have ideas to do many more from different decades.

Very nice, I like it a lot. That slight weathering effect really makes it look realistic 🙂

Super build.  Just enough weathering to let it be known this a a true work truck, but not so much as to make it look abused.  I have to try that one of these days.

Excellent weathering! 

Are there any photos of what's in the basket on the bed box?

Nice build.  Good job weathering the truck and detailing the engine.

Thanks all for the kind words. As soon as this kit arrived I knew I had to clear the bench for it. It was a lot of fun.

These were in the rack from an old build. Spade, flat shovel, 2 prod rods, post driver and a piece of pipe. All tools of the trade. Also a couple of traffic cones.

Wauu! Very nice! This is what I want. :-)  I can't wait for them to sell it at our place, too.

Great build, very realistic looking fleet truck. I was holding out for the longbed styleside, but this one might change my mind.
