84 pieces in those tyres guys. They look good John.

I have the chassis built. It comprises of no less than 38 parts. Some delicate parts have yet to be cleaned up.

Location points are tiny and all but useless. Slowly, slowly is the way.





John... beware cutting the bed shackles off the sprues. They could easily break. And I'd advise clean up, only after they are installed. I tried to clean one and it instantly broke into three pieces.

You are going to have fun with the  shackle retainers. They are tiny and made my fingers look and feel like Elephants feet!!!! LOL

Great work, guys. That's some beautiful detail in the chassis pieces.

Hey Al - have you ever CA'd a very tiny piece and find it's disappeared, panic and start looking on and under the work table only to find it CA'd to your fingertip?

Al:  I just started the chassis an hour or so ago.  One of the first things I did was destroy a shackle retainer.  Managed to get it back together and will move much more  slowly now.

Looking good guys. That engine reminds me a lot of an Old Ford Model A engine.

Buck: The truck was built by the Russians under license from Ford. It was actually a Ford Model AA. The Russians built them from about 1937 to 1945. There were thousands of them manufactured.

Thanks Mike and Buck.

I forgot to add, there are parts locating points on the chassis but they are so fine, they are really only a guide. They don't aid construction at all.
