I built up the cab and what part of the canvas canopy ICM provide and temporarily attached the two together with tape. I then used that to smash mould a rear cab canopy from thin plastic card held in a frame and softened over a gas ring. This allowed the new part of the canopy to realistically drape around the cab rear bodywork and also fit the shape of the existing part of the canopy provided in the model.

Once glued to and blended in to the existing canopy, which required a bit of work, the result looked quite presentable,

Looks like a GREAT KIT!!!

And now, a complaint sort of disguised as a question:

I would like to know WHY many model companies will show a beautiful box top illustration of a Soft-skin wearing a canvas tarp over the Cargo Bed/Box, and then they DON'T PROVIDE said tarp in the kit..?
