Beautiful work on a one of a kind truck.

A couple of more pix of progress made.  Deciding it was time to begin the truck body I got out the 0.030 plastic sheet stock and some strip stock of various sizes and went to work.  I adjusted the length to a 10' long body.  Somewhere in the process the sides got wracked so that it was not square.  It was taken apart sufficient to make a new floor and square up the sides and front.  The upper portion was going to be of plastic but the brass is so much easier to bend and when soldered together looks better scale wise.  A tailgate and lifting mechanism still have to be done and there are some details left on the chassis to complete.
