@TankModeler - where did you source the side rails and tailgate parts for the cargo section on your LAV?  Scratch-Built or scrounged?   
Essentially scratchbuilt.

I had, inthe depths of my spares collection, an ancient (like I bought them 25-30 years ago) set of lumber stock for an HO railway lumberyard. The largest pieces had "woodgrain" that was waaaaay too big, even in 1/35, much less HO, but the pieces were the right size and I just cut them down and added the C channel structure from Plastruct and then added Grandt Line bolts to hold them in place.

Probably took me 1.5 - 2 hours of my build time to do the stake body walls and another 90 minutes to cut away the hull and scratchbuild the new truck bed portion.

If I was doing it with more time I'd have added tie-downs to the bed, hinges and brackets to hold the stake body pieces and a few more details, but I'm pretty please with it as it is.

@TankModeler - I have that same set of HO scale stacked lumber and yes, the wood grain details are over the top.  :smiley:

This is amazing for a 24 hour build. Another model absolutely screaming out for a diorama treatment

Not a diorama, but I am going to try and get it onto a scenic base for an upcoming contest. Some broken concrete and sidewalk plus a few "jersey barriers" and some refuse, etc.
