This is a project that I’ve been wanting to for a long time it’s a 1/48 Tamiya GMC cckw Tanker truck with a Don Mills models converter dolly with a old Revell tanker trailer that I cut down to a shorter version. I replace the original GMC tanker truck cab with the soft top from the cargo truck. This is what I have so far enjoy the pics.

I got a little more done on the tanker trailer I added external suport bands to the tanker and painted it. Also I started working on the converter dolly. Enjoy the pics

I didn’t like the Don Mills wheels so I went with the Tamiya cargo truck ones. Here’s some update pics. Drilled holes in suspension added some round styrene stock for the wheels
