Latest acquisition = Gearbox 1929 Model A Postal Truck.

I don't think I can do anything to this except apply licence plates ?

Ken

Are you going to keep the US Mail logos ?

Are they stickers ?

I think I'll leave it as is for now.

It looks OK to me as a Brit,
unless there are glaring errors ?

They are stickers so might just peel off
when I get round to repainting it.

I'll be on the lookout for ideas
from prototype photos in the meanwhile.

Regards, Ken

My problem with this truck,
is that the "I Want You.." poster was for WWI,
and would not be on a 1929 vehicle.

I planned to repaint mine,
but never got to it.

Here you can see there is no poster on this truck,

although the U.S. Mail lettering is OK.

Here's the real one.

From what I've been able to find,
some one in the Antique Ford Club had
a '29 mail truck, and put the poster on it.

The toy companies must have used it
as a prototype for their models.

Note the wheels.

Regards, Dave L.

Thanks Dave.

The scuttle on the model is black,
as is the door slide cover & radiator,
and the rear fenders on the model are wrong.

Yes, it needs a bit of work to be correct.

Regards

Ken
