Shopping buddy strikes again !

Have been looking for one of these for a while.......it is a good job my shopping buddy knows what I like๐Ÿ˜€
It is the matchbox yesteryear 1935 version and once again a pretty good scale for 28 mm. I think a squad of firemen could easily hang off the back on their way to battle. The photo doesn't quite get the shiny nature of the truck so I may have to put some Matt vanish on it to cool it down a bit, at least of the wheels. I am wondering how I could build a driver ?

  3. Good find by your shopping elf! For the driver I suggest Empress Minis driver with head swap from a fireman.
