I have been here nearly 8 months and still hadn’t built myself a work truck. I started back many years ago with Perkins Electric. Then when I started overseas work, I just kept the same simple design “C” truck for every post and country I have worked. Modifying each one and adding signage as to where I was. Pictures 1-4 are of the latest here in Moscow, Russia Picture #5 is of the other 4. Some were previously posted. This one has red Diplomatic tags on it. Never thought of that before. Now I can start work….......

They look great Doug. Plenty of detail on the Embassy truck, I love those raised white letter tires!
Nice work!

You are a master of these types of builds. Always enjoy them. This is way cool. I have always wanted an old panel truck. One of these days I may wind up with one.

It’s the detail that makes it nice and you put plenty of detail in your work. I also like the radiator grill. All that detail makes me smile.

Thanks for sharing!

Great work Doug. You have quite a fleet there. I like this one best, but they are all very nice. A cool way to document your stays in the various parts of the world. Let me know when you get sent to Norway!
