To make a model railroad.
Structures, scenery, and vehicles are all part of the mix.
Which is why I share these 2 models with you.
CMP dump truck and wrecker.
CMP? Canadian Military Pattern trucks. A unique cab design that was applied to a variety of vehicles during the war. And a significant number of them were sold to civilian use after the war ended.
The dump truck will be used in the local coal dealer and the wrecker likely part of some garage in Aylmer or Delhi.
I've always loved the look of CMP trucks and have waited for years for HO scale models of these iconic vehicles.
So isn't typical of this hobby that I had to go to Holland to purchase kits of a Canadian prototype?
Artitec offers a large range of resin cast HO scale military vehicles. Very nicely cast models that do require a little work to clean up , and make up into very nice vehicle models.
I'm glad I finally found these.
One more item off the wish list.
