Abandoned Road Boss

Post by Shoey on Fri 27 Jun 2014, 12:21 am

Hey Guys, This is a commission build for a 60th birthday present,
I'm not one for building stuff to part with, I get too attached to them.
Any how I knocked this one up in about 5 days, but a few very late nights.
it's the AMT White Road Boss, ultra basic kit, with super ultra basic instructions. 
a few parts did not make the cut, so they fell off my bench into the bin.
I hope you like!

Sad to look at this diorama and imagine the pain & sorrow
of a trucker having to abandon his only sole source of income
because of rising repair, fuel & insurance costs!. They are pushed
to the limits, and in the end, the strong ones... Walk away.

Brilliant!.... but it is very sorrowful to look at.
