A Builder's Truck - In 1/32...

Morning everyone!

Here's my latest little model, this time based on Fujimi's 1/32 Mitsubishi Canter truck. This one will feature as part of a large new diorama entitled "Echoes" and as such, replicates a generic builder's truck loaded with the bits and pieces needed for their next project. I tried to use as much imagination as possible with this one and so rather than build a specific vehicle, I elected to build something that captures the feel of one of these vehicles, their dilapidated appearance and weathered look. Though the model was built from the box, I changed the dashboard around to produce a left-hand drive vehicle (the diorama will be set in Europe, though where I'm not too sure yet, which is why it has no number plates) and then loaded it up with items from the spares' box and the aftermarket. The model was painted with enamels and then weathered using standard armour-modelling techniques to create the rather unloved appearance you see here.

I hope you like it!
