    Started to clean up some ugly bits,ready for final assembly.Under the tray was a bit rough to say the least,so a good rub and a coat of poly.
    The other pic is of 2 oval bits that will be for the front bumper.They are only about 1 cm long >not quite finished but getting close

    I dummied it up today to get an idea of what needs fixing or making better.
    I put some spoked wheels on (unpainted and bought for another project) I think they will look better than the heavy looking truck wheels that are suggested.
    Can you give me a bit of feedback please.
    I have made the truck in a way that I can remove them and swap at anytime.The tray is removable also.I have ideas for different backs to go on the cab/chassis.If they look OK I would then make a new cab etc to go with the backs.
    Don't forget the feedback about the wheels

    Default spokes

    Hi Aussie, definitely the spokes I think, looks a bit more old/authentic with them on. Maybe keep the other wheels for a 50's/60's type truck/ute/pickup.
    lookin good
    cheers. billy

    Spokes it is guys.I have the 6 off them dissasembled and have started their trip down the truck assembly line.
    It has been a bit cold to do too much woodwork.
    I have made a new rear axle housing to suit the spoked wheels.
    As soon as I get the wheels and axle ready to fit I will post some photos
