    Found this in a baggie at Goodwill. After taking a look at it, I decided I had to do something with it.

    I painted the frame, dump bed, rear window and lower chassis in "Apple Barrel" "pavement" colored acrylics over a lightly sanded surface, painted the wheel centers, touched up some chips, made appliques for the back of the dump bed to simulate realistic tailgate details, applied a black wash to the cab,

    and made a rear bumper that will eventually get better taillights along with a license plate.This will be a municipal fleet vehicle for my diorama setting.

    It's safe to say my creativity is back in full force with this project, now that I'm mostly out of the woods with my Cellulitis.

    Nice job making something cool out of an old toy 👍
