Guest Gallery - Japanese Trucks by Dave Hall

Here are a few recognizable Hasegawa trucks, a Starter Toyota GB and a Fuel Isuzu TX-40.
There were pretty simple conversions.  I used Evergreen Scale Models, Sheet Styrene with 2.0mm spacing V-Groove for the truck beds.
The Toyota is the smaller of the two vehicles.  Each could be said to hold a squad of infantry.  The Isuzu's canvas cover is a modified one from a Pegasus American 6 Ton.  I just cut the back end off to fit the length of the bed.  Both are pretty easy kits, but I would probably stick with the Isuzu as a primary truck transport.
For any experts on Japanese trucks, the beds are a little rudimentary in design but there are few pictures out on the internet to work off of and I opted for the wargamer's choice!
Keeping it simple

Cheers!
