When I was working in Lund 2017 I
found two identical trucks on second
hand for only 2.5 Euros each.
They are both in the scale 1:56 and
originally Chevrolet salvage trucks.
In many games I have found a need
for military trucks for transport or
supply and my goal with these are to
convert these into this.
First I need to convert them with a
flatbed and next will be to make a
cover on top of that construction.
To achieve this I first made a model
of cardboard to get the scale right.
Next was to cut out the flatbed-frame
out of a 3mm plastic-sheet.
All external details on the flatbed is
made out of plastic sprues (left overs).
The cover-frame is made from a metal-
mesh used for garden-tasks and the
squares are 15x15mm.
The cover will be removable.
In my next report (part 2) I will explain
how I will make the cover out of thick
paper baby-wipes drenched in pva.
