Matchbox 1/76 Diamond T Tank Tranporter

Recommended Posts

This kit has been sitting started in my stash for literally years. With my current covid confinement, I pulled it out and finished it off. It's OOTB with the exception of hollowing out the trailer ramps and chocks as I have seen in photos. Makes it more interesting I think. I also added all the stowage to fill up all that space in the back of the truck and on the trailer and the glazing in the truck windows. Left the driver side one part way down. Kit was typical Matchbox. Detail was a bit mushy and fit was problematic in places. But it's the only injection molded one in this scale, so it's your only choice.

Looks great.  I really enjoy seeing the vintage kits being built OOB at your skill level.  Encourages me to get up the courage to bring down some of the old ones from the stash and give them a try.

Wow, that is magnificent work Ron! I built one of these before too, it certainly didn't achieve this level of excellence. I do want to get a couple more to make with other countries markings.
