Promoting Excellence in HO Scale Vehicle Modeling

Ford Thames Truck - By Daniel Vinay

Always with the unusual models, Daniel Vinay presents one of the trucks that run between Peshawar and Kabul by the Khyber Pass. We are indeed at the border between Pakistan and Afghanistan. The trucks found here are transformations of almost any truck from the Sixties. The addition to the top of the cab makes it possible to carry a maximum of cargo and passengers. The decorations with vivid colors represent either holy images and symbols intended to protect the truck or perhaps the fantasies and passions of the driver. The basis of this model is an Eko Ford Thames. The new body was created out of various parts and the decorations required a few hours of patience.
