Model Builder 4,

Congrats on a win with a truly unique and wonderfully done truck! I at first thought, how hard will it be to vote for a Truck of the Month?!
Once again, I was promptly put in my place by all the fantastic entries! :crazy: It proved just as hard as it always is to pick the best one!

Cheers, to all the runner ups too. Fabulous entries, one and all!

Regards,
Eric.

Bravo! to Lee for the rubber duckie! As a 'murrican I appreciate your model of this unique US vehicle. As a Wisconsinite, I have yet to ride the ducks at Wisconsin Dells. Maybe post-covid I can find a remedy. Now as for the rest of you truck-builders who competed: I was absolutely amazed at all your work and jealous as heck. I hope soon we can see your entries again in another TrOTM contest. It was impressive!
Then, too, let's have a 1/2TrkOTM and,
what a hoot! a DogOTM :D Wait, you wizards would make it RC bark and bite, too. :haha:

Jimster, painless, professor, thank you all very much for your kind comments :D it was a great display of truck based builds on show and anyone of them worthy of winning, it's things like this competition and the camaraderie here that pushes me on to try and improve my own builds to the level that you see on show on this forum :thumbup:

Cheers,Lee.

Congratulations on the win, in 1972 I was posted to 18 Sqn RCT. Unfortunately it was being disbanded and I moved with C Troop to 65 Sqn RCT. A collector in the UK was asked if he wanted some spare parts for his collection, he didn’t bring enough trucks on the first pick up and had to do a few collections.
