Overload Truck


Recommended Posts

Like my last overload project this one takes things a little further. The scale is 1/35, simply because, I had this vehicle on on that I did not know what to do with it. So I turn it from being a military truck to a civilian vehicle instead. This brand of trucks are sometimes used in the African regions so I thought I would use it for this build. I used whatever fits the bill, from old clothing, rubber, tissue paper, plastic, and odds and ends that I had saved in my ‘box of tricks’, to get the job done. I even added a toilet bowl to throw in some interest. The plastic yellow/orange containers are used a lot in many regions in Africa, so I painted and added them to the mix of odds and ends. I want to thank Ulf Lindgren for sending me the containers. These were 3d printed. He did and amazing job with the fine details of the containers. The drawings were provided by another great modeler, Peter Olsson. Thanks guys.

 

Note. I just noticed, I had forgotten to shave off the thin rubber in the middle of the tyre on top of the cab. Will try and shave it off. Otherwise, it was a fun build. Thanks for looking.

Beautifully done. I've seen photos of trucks in Sahara & sub Saharan Africa at least as badly overloaded as that. Is it a Volvo?

Another brilliant build, not only the load and those couple of guys stuck in there somewhere but the truck itself as well. Fantastic paint and weathering.

What a super-cool (and brilliantly executed) build!

I clicked on this, wondering what was meant by "Overload" - a brand of truck, maybe?

Yes, I know, it is much more straightforward than that; and I love the story this tells!

Fantastic small details and weathering!  :clap2::clap2::clap2:

Is there a kitchen sink in there somewhere?  😄

I decided to put the overloaded truck model  in a minimilistic diorama. The plan is to take a photo of the truck from the front and overlay it within a 'Time' or some other magazine-like cover page. This view will be the view the photographer in the diorama, has taken and published as a cover photo for the magazine. I am still working on adding little details here and there and trying to add a figure in front of the truck as well as a ladder and a figure climbing at the rear to place more stuff in the cargo pile. We'll see how far I can take this.
A small note. While trying to move the truck to the present position, the axle broke. 🙁 But I managed to glue it(which gave me some headaches, due to the clumsy pile of things at the rear. It made it harder to hold while trying to glue back the axle. I succeeded nonetheless. So far, I am happy with the results, until I can add the other details.


I managed to manipulate a photo of my truck, on the cover of two Swedish magazines. Looks pretty cool:

And of course, it'll have a valid, up to date certificate saying that it is completely road worthy??

Nice work Charles. I've seen things like this in Egypt and SE Asia too. They frighten the bejabers out of me.
