Flatbed truck from Frontline

This truck comes from Frontline’s 20mm civilian range. I had a vague collection of having bought it, and searched the tin/plastics mountain. Yep, there it was, and it would really fit in with the factory had just completed.
As I intended to use it in todays’ game I had to make a real rush-job, just had two evenings to finish it, and packing everything for the game. 
Wanted something that could have a dual role as both civilian and passable military use for future games, so no garish colours.
It served today as an improvised road-block.
Paints used:
Flatbed – 843 Cork Brown with a wash of Citadel Devlan Mud and brushed with Cork Brown.
Metal – Citadel Chainmail
Body – Citadel Foundation Charadon Granite
Tires – Black
Windows – Black with a gloss varnish
Load – Vallejo 819 Iraqui Sand with a wash of Citadel Devlan Mud
Rope –Vallejo 876 Brown Sand
Everything was brushed with a variety of Vallejo and Mig pigments.
Loading canned cabbages bound for the Kremlin.
