Scratchbuilt FWD Model B 3 Ton Truck

The last of these scratchbuilds for a while. I must get on with painting and suppress the the urges of my inner twelve year old self and focus on other projects. With the exception of  two pieces of styrene rod and a bit of brass wire, this truck used to be a manilla card wallet!




From what I can find out, 500 of these American FWD trucks were delivered to the British Army who used them primarily as artillery tractors. Some were convereted into fuel tankers, searchlight carriers and balloon tenders.

That is an absolute beauty! Never would have guessed it was made from card. Well done sir!

What a wonderful piece of kit and all the card for it being scratch built and from card too
