At 1:48 scale this is a great addition to my O gauge model train layout and a great Covid project. I had a little trouble with some parts fitting together, though.
For its age this model can be built up into an eye catcher and it's an unusual subject. Plastic windows can be made from Evergreen clear plastic sheet and any join line can be filled & sanded smooth to make the truck body appear as a single part. The truck can also be polished to a gloss & clear coated to avoid painting and the cure time required. It was after all a working vehicle that probably wasn't waxed.
This is a nice little kit. At 1/48 scale it goes together very good and has great detail for its size. I highly recommend it to all truck enthusiasts and to all who want something different to build. 3 cheers for Atlantis for reissuing it!
