Hi all!
I'm Fabio, a scale modeler from Italy. I'd like to reproduce the Ford 15A captured by our army in N.A shown in the pic below

http://www.modellismopiu.net/m+galle..._itemId=122724

On another thread on the forum I've found the drawing I'm posting below which helped me identifying (I hope) the truck body as a 2B1 type

http://www.modellismopiu.net/m+galle..._itemId=122726

The drawing itself is very useful to make the outside part of the body, but does not give any hint of the inside and of the front wall. About the rear wall I've found a couple of pics.
Can anybody help me finding the other views to complete the whole picture?
Thanks in advance for your time and kindness.

Thanks a lot guys for your prompt answers.
Hopefully I managed to fix the images issue...

George: it would be great, because the only clue I've got is about the left side of the body. If you wish you can email me the pics or, better, you can post them here to share with the oters too...

Cliff: don't worry take all the time you need

Thanks again once more!

Default I'm back...

Hi guys!!!
More or less an year later I'm back to show you where I've got since I collected the documentation that you kindly provided me with.
The model is (or better should be) almost finished, I know I've to finish the internal door panels and that there are a couple of details I have to add like the canvas hooks.













If you find any problems, please feel free to point them out because all of the main parts are just white glued and I can intervene without big headheaches.
Thanks a lot once more for your help and I look for your constructive feedback.
Ciao
Fabio

P.S. If somebody is interested in the "bits and bites" of the project a lot pf pics are available following tis link.
