I've been working on this across the last couple of days. Started life as a Lledo "days gone by" truck, I cleaned it up and undercoated it in grey primer before repainting to the above finish. I went with an interwar/early WW2 green/brown paint scheme, and I like the results.
I wanted to use this as a supply truck in my VBCW games (and pulp I suppose) so I have filled the truck bed with various bits from my modelling cupboard. The supplies are from a wide range of manufacturers and scales, I just grabbed anything that looked right.
I'm quite chuffed with how this turned out as I haven't tried painting a diecast before, I have a couple more of these dicast trucks in the cupboard and a fuel tanker from the same range. All will now be painted up to match I think.
