ESCI M6 3/4 Ton Truck in 1/72 Scale

This is the ESCI M6 3/4 ton truck.  A bit clunky by today’s standards but it can still be built up to a presentable model and is a useful subject.  This one shares molds with the other members of the ESCI M6 family which means it also shares the problems  of ejector pin marks and mold seams.  There are fit issues with several of the parts, so this is not a straight-forward build.  Be sure to mount the rear springs to the bottom of the bed instead of the frame or the model will sit much too high.
