JeroenS Posted February 12 Share Posted February 12 Hi all, I'm joining in with this nice Japanese truck. I'd never heard of Mitsuwa Model before I picked this one up from marketplace because I like the look of these trucks. They're just a little bit different from European trucks which makes them interesting. In fact I've built a similar truck a while ago, which is Aoshima's Hino HH tractor in 1/32 Scale. So the FUSO should complement this nicely. I believe Hino is a Toyota brand, while the FUSO is Mitsubishi. The FUSO kit was newly tooled in 1981 and this is also the boxing I have which is pretty cool. I was able to pick it up for a very decent price as well. Let's see what's in the box. There's a nice "data sheet" in there. I already like this colour scheme better than I like the yellow box art. I have something in mind though, but I'll definitely have a look online as well. There are two sets of instructions, one in English, the other in Japanese. Nice '80's style drawings. Cab parts. Cab interior. You're probably wondering what that bulge is. Well, this is a battery housing. The truck is actually motorised. It's kind of fun, but I will not be using this, I won't be playing with it. Nice big chassis beams. Truck parts. There's a nice set of wheels and tires. Chrome parts, which look more like polished alu, I actually like this a lot. I think for once I will not be stripping and repainting this, though that still depends on how they look when the're off the sprues, and whether I'll be able to do touch-up's on the attachment points. Clear parts. And finally an old decal sheet, we'll have to see how these behave. I think I'll be using the Japanse plates, and not put on Dutch plates. This should be a nice build. 20 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
