Meng released their F-350 King Ranch pickup in both 1/24 and 1/35 scale. This is the 1/35 version. I found photos online of some of the trucks that were used by Iraqi insurgents, and the F-350 figures prominently. One in particular looked pretty interesting as a model project and most of the parts were available in that scale.

The gun in the back is also from Meng. It's a Russian ZU-23-2 anti-aircraft gun. 

I liked the color scheme and had fun with that. Because the windows are small, the interior is hard to see, so I included a shot of that before I finished assembling the truck. That Chinese assault rifle is really tiny in 1/35 scale. There's a shot of that before I painted it.

I've also included a couple of photos with other vehicles to give an idea of relative size. Hard to believe that an F-350 is as big as a WWII GMC 6X6.
