Rear Dumping Truck

I have wanted to build this rigged-looking truck from the 1957 № 6 set manual since my schoolboy days. It looked quite a simple model to build, but I found that it is really tricky to set up correctly.

I have modified the model considerably, adding steering, a revised bonnet and radiator, a stronger tipping body and a screwed rod tipping mechanism (similar to that in my Bedford Lorry) and tweaked several of the details to suit the parts I had available. I then added seats and door mirrors to complete the model.
