AWESOME idea for a small vignette.  I've got to admit when I first saw these pictures the scene from the Grinch when he and his dog Max load up their sled with all of the Christmas fixings from Whoville ran through my mind!

Oh krap how did I miss this!?!?!

 

Awesome work!!! 

Reminds me of a Filipino bus model FSM had back in '87 or so. It was designed to seat about a dozen but the modeler had over thirty folks crowded on it including the roof! 

 

 

Now I would have loved to have seen that model. Let me know if you find it.

That perspective is awesome! Love the camera man down the road. The manhole cover is important, adds that element of distance to the open road. Great stuff man!

 

Thank you. Apprecaite your assessment. :)

In the pattern: Scale Shipyard's 1/48 Balao Class Sub! leaning out the list, we're down to a Monogram 1/72 SR-71 and that Tamiya P-38F/G to use the other nose art Exito Decal (in-flight for this one), & in keeping with MC's hydra theory I bought another F-5E to do in FROG camo! And I just got a Trumpeter 1/32 F/A-18F!

Wow, now that's an overload.....not even going to ask how the three topside riders got up there.

 

Reminds me of some old photos of logging trucks over here in the 60's on company roads

 

 

 

 

HAHAHA!!! Don't ask. I don't know either :)))) But check out these photos and you can ask again. ;)

Truck Overload
Posted by Tiking on Sunday, November 7, 2021 9:23 AM

 

Like my last overload project this one takes things a little further. The scale is 1/35, simply because, I had this vehicle on on that I did not know what to do with it. So I turn it from being a military truck to a civilian vehicle instead. This brand of trucks are sometimes used in the African regions so I thought I would use it for this build. I used whatever fits the bill, from old clothing, rubber, tissue paper, plastic, and odds and ends that I had saved in my ‘box of tricks’, to get the job done. I even added a toilet bowl to throw in some interest. The plastic yellow/orange containers are used a lot in many regions in Africa, so I painted and added them to the mix of odds and ends. I want to thank Ulf Lindgren for sending me the containers. These were 3d printed. He did and amazing job with the fine details of the containers. The drawings were provided by another great modeler, Peter Olsson. Thanks guys.
 
The plan is to take a photo of the truck from the front and overlay it within a 'Time' or some other magazine-like cover page. This view will be the view the photographer in the diorama, has taken and published as a cover photo for the magazine. I am still working on adding little details here and there and trying to add a figure in front of the truck as well as a ladder and a figure climbing at the rear to place more stuff in the cargo pile. We'll see how far I can take this.
 
A small note. While trying to move the truck to the present position, the axle broke. But I managed to glue it(which gave me some headaches, due to the clumsy pile of things at the rear. It made it harder to hold while trying to glue back the axle. I succeeded nonetheless. So far, I am happy with the results, until I can add the other details.
----------------------------------------------------------
 
 
I managed to manipulate a photo of my truck, on the cover of two Swedish magazines. Looks pretty cool:
