    Reminds me of the old "Divco" milk delivery trucks. Very nice! :)

    I like it! Looks like it could develop into as much of a project the builder would wish..engine/ open doors etc! I remember these when I was a kid living in Luzy Sur Marne. I also will be watching this!

    I tried to do a "Divco Truck", but could not find enough material to accurately produce it to my satisfaction, (This isn't a "Divco" but similar, in Cab design) The DIVCO was a bit more rounded. This does have much potential. :)

    Hi, Thank you for your support, I greatly appreciate it. Please excuse some inaccuracies on the model. This is the first compilation and I'm still looking for the best approach. Sometimes I can not stick any part of it again. On the chassis, it is possible to build multiple variants (ene. Ambulance). A vehicle drove already WW2, but mainly it is known in civil version.

    The pattern may have an opening door and the hood for access to the engine. The proposal with the count, but I would like to maintain a certain degree of simplicity. Get documentation is complicated, so I will be grateful for any feedback (negative too).

    thx

    Looks good to me. Documentation can be a real problem, that's why I gave up on my "Divco Truck". :)

    She is looking GREAT!!! and I agree with you...simple is good..

    but it is the build the allows for those who wish to go beyond the basic and add all the thrills...

    I really hate when the "PROS"/ model companies have a great model ..and add a fake bottom half of an engine to the bottom of a box held together with bracing when the ability to put the full engine compartment and engine would have been simpler to begin with! Looks like yours is going in a great direction!!!

    You would not believe how far I got on the "Divco" but I felt few would built it. :)

    The prototype can be marked as finished. It was necessary to make some compromises in design. Unfortunately, you can not upload photos directly to... :-(

    Very nice indeed. Don't worry about uploading directly as we do have this problem. The truck looks great. I love these kinds of models. ;)

    This looks really good! I can see that it has quite a bit of greebling potential.
