Last week I received a 1:87 Dodge Tradesman that I ordered a while ago.
This will become my 1:87 (1:8.7) scale Lunchbox eventually.


This is a long wheelbase body so it will need to match the short wheelbase of the Lunchbox. In real life Tradesman came in 109 and 127in wheelbase, 109 being the short wheelbase type as per Lunchbox


This little guy is a tad longer than the standard Tamiya box wrench


It's all metal so there is a bit weight to it.


And size compared to a 1:87 VW T3 (T25) Transporter (Vanagon)



Now I need to find someone that has a table saw as I don't trust myself to cut it at right angle with my own hands and hand held tools.

I also got something else today, but you have to wait a while to see that as it a part of my secret project.

Thank you very much folks!

Today another micro vehicle arrived for the scale garage.
A VW T1 Camper, not that far away from how the camper of my late father would have looked if he kept it grey.
Love this color combo
Produced by Wiking.

Finally got round to start painting Fox and Dana today.
As JR has said, these take X-XF / Vallejo paint very well!

Did some more painting today.
Had to redo tthe shoes on Dana, too much grey.
Had to do 3 atempts as the colors or texture looked rubbish.
Did them in flat red, too flat so I have to add some clear to them.
Also started on some details.
I will not attempt to weaather them as I do suck on that part, it either turns into a wrong color or it looks weird.




Helmets will be sprayed as I never can get a even coat hand painting them.
There is rain forecasted for the whole week so there will be an delay in the paint process.

Progress is progressĀ
