This is kind of an odd kit I bought awhile back and  figured now is a good time to start this one. Its an Aoshima 1/24 th kit# 008300. Cooking area is pretty detailed, actually the entire kit is really detailed. The 2 tires are a comparison to show how small the truck is. The 1/24  tire on the left is a kit tire and a 1/25 car tire on the right. Part count is pretty good, decals good and a really big clear tree of parts and a driver .Aoshima also offers this kit as a mobile video game truck. This is a flash free crisp kit.

It’s a cool little truck! There are two different series of this kit. I have several from the earlier series.

It looks like at one time the chassis was set up for a battery operated engine. Have you built one yet Tom?

This is as far as I’ve gotten. I cut off the box to make a pickup.

Getting some of the signs and decals mounted. With the use of Micro sol and Micro set decal solution, the curved edges and grooved surface areas came out great. Color choice , Tamiya Aqua. Most of the detail work will be in the back cooking area.

Seeing these food vendors vans makes me want to get back to Japan quicker than I planned, Japanese food is certainly different,  but I could just eat a bowl of Oden right now.....

Very cool!, i think the back cab would look good on any of the Moebuis trucks that have come out the last couple years.

It’s extremely small, way too little for a Ford truck. It may make for an interesting trailer though.

Very neatly done so far! I like the choice of colour, sets off the decals nicely! I have two similar kits, as I buy them whenever I see them, but really want the one with the fish on top(picture courtesy of Scalemates)!  Keep up the good work!

Are those waterslide decals or peel-n-stick stickers?
