Dear friends.
I present to you my very first project focused on the construction of a truck. It took a little longer because I worked with hardwood and hand tools (saw, file). I adjusted some details according to the photos on the internet.

MISTER – I am so taken aback with overall construction and detail that I am without the proper words befitting such a grand piece.

Also, when at Ft Dix ( 1960 ) I drove deuce & 1/2 for a couple months as an instructor. GREAT, Great job and thanks for the memories brought back

Great Job Marek, I love all the detail, from the worn tires to the bent front fender, it looks like a well used military cargo truck. I drove many of them while I was in the service. Although they are now called 7-tons, the overall look has not changed much.

Again, Great job!

Thank you all for your comments. I didn’t expect a response either. I am very pleased that you like the details I tried. The main thing is that it will be appreciated by those who know the truck and rode on it. It’s not like that with us. I didn’t even have a plan. I drew everything from the internet. And he only made hand tools. Therefore, many thanks for appreciating the effort.

It’s so real I can hear the troops inside grumbling about the long bumpy ride, and where the hell did that driver get to. Truly nice truck, for a first it’s fabulous.
