This is the ICM , WW1 Ford pick up for Australian Army , 1/35 scale .

Nice kit to build . Lots of detail . Excellent fit-up .

I had a bit of trouble with the wind shield though .

For some reason the rear wheels seem to fit too far ahead under the fenders . I went back underneath to re-check my work , starting with fit-up of driveshaft to transmission.

All was in the correct location .

 This engine had lots of detail so an open hood version would work quite well .

 I need more practice with the weathering .

This truck will be used in a WW1 diorama coming up .

The final verdict : Nice kit to work on with endless possibilities for add-ons . Very little flash to sand . Instructions are straight forward .

 I'd recommend this kit .

 Enjoy.

Robert.

Thanks for feedback .

We airbrushed Tamiya Buff/Khaki for colour .

 Soft artists pastels shaved down with  Vallejo pigment binder was lightly applied for effects .

Tamiya flat clear / Tamiya thinner to seal off .

 No door handles in kit . Tires are plastic .
