"GMC 2.5 Ton 6x6 Cargo Truck"
chriscovert1
Great replica. A lot of flat surface to flat surface fitting. I had to use some putty around the fenders. Concur with the comment about delicate parts. Be very careful when taking parts of sprues. Lost a star because there wasn't an option for the hard top model with the .50 cal machine gun. All of the trucks from my father's AAA battalion had the hard to and machine guns.

"Great Replica"
JeremyRichard90 (Hampton, Virginia)
Building this model presented me with a few challenges overall the detail is excellent. the way the model came together as it was built was perfect had no issues with building or painting this model. the best thing I can recomend is to buy two of these trucks and keep one the original, and add the 6x6 cargo truck accessory set to the other. Both truck are just superb. this is another quality kit from Tamiya.

 
"Fun"
Al (Mahopac. NY)
Building this replica of a 2.5 ton cargo truck was fun. The detail and engine assembly were highly accurate and one you paint and add a few accessories it almost appeared to come to life. For extra authenticity it can be turned into a transport truck by purchasing additional soldiers.

 
"Fun model to put together"
WDOzment (Magnolia, KY)
Very detailed model. Pieces fit together very nicely. Lots of extras for added realism along with different configurations...so you can put together the same model multiple times and have a completely different vehicle. The only thing I have against it, and I have ran into the same problem with other Tamiya models, is that some of the parts are extremely delicate. So you have to be very careful when handling the sprues and removing these delicate parts for assembly or you can end up breaking them. Other than that I have no complaints.
