Very nice truck since the toolbox can be removed why don't you make a small crane for it? :classic:

Thanks everyone for the positive vibes about this truck, I'll try to sticker this and the loader in the next few days......yeah, I thought also the tool chest was a nice and useful touch.
Keep watching ! (oh, yeah I might be building another art deco style tyre dealer shortly.....after the road roller is completed)

Thanks, truthfully the sticker wasn't that hard to make.....but it does make the truck pop a little more ! :classic:
Oh, yeah there is a towing hitch on the mixer too......so when the trailer isn't being pulled....the truck tows the mixer. :wink:

I have two tiny questions for everyone.....the bumper on the front of the truck....is it too rounded for an Isuzu ?
Should it have just a 1x6 tile instead and apply two oval black spot stickers on them to give them an even more realistic look ?

Thanks 'TBB', I'm still going to try a straight bumper on the truck - photograph it, post it and see what everyone thinks......but that won't be until Monday (Adelaide time). :blush:

Thanks 'LT12V', I might photograph different angles of the mixer just in case some people want to copy it......I feel it's one of my best cement mixers I have designed (my own brief for it was....small parts count while trying to maintain realism).
Keep watching everyone ! :classic:

I would really appreciate that, as it's the best I have seen.

Thanks, LT.  Took a little while to figure out the little lift arm with the axle bit as I haven't come across that before, but otherwise all good.

Yes, but after the next BrickLink order.  In addition to the little lift arm, I also need to order a hollow 4x4 cone.

Will give you the appropriate credit if it turns up in an online photo one day! :grin:
