This is is Tamiya's new 1/48 scale GMC Airfield Fuel Truck. The model is built straight from the box except for replacement side mirrors from wire and punched plastic, and another punched circle for the bridge class disc.
This is a great model for aircraft and military fans alike.
After I had finished my model I heard suggestions that this kit should have a window in the back of the cab. I can't find photographic evidence one way or another on a wartime example, so check your references carefully and make up your own mind.
A detailed Feature Article describing construction, painting and weathering will appear in Issue 99 of Model Military International magazine.
Thanks to Tamiya for the sample
