    I started with a badly playworn, thrift store find Lesney transitional Superfast Unimog (partly disassembled in these pics), added a treaded spare tire and parts bin interior, and fitted Matchbox wheels.

    I adapted the wheels to look less plasticy and less toy-like, and moved on to the rest of the casting.

    And I painted the body/base in Fire Red with Black base. The bed will be made to look like wood, the grille/lights/PTO detailed, a Greenlight trailer hitch added, and the door handles detailed along with having the suggestion of a rear cab window added.
