Hi Miloslav. Another stunning vehicle. Together with the stencils, it has so much appeal. You´ve managed to actually make this thing look heavy (Im sure it is aso with so much resin!) Great paint job, and the weathering is just right to give it a well used look.
In the third image down, it appears that a part of the steering assembley has fallen down. Im not a mechanic, but something about that part doesn´t look right. Another suggestion would be to weather the dumper bed area. The vehicle looks worn, but the bed is pristine. IMO, this is the area ... with the proper weathering ... that would bring this vehicle to the highest level. I see tipping lorries every day going to work, and this almost jumps out as needing attention. If the lorry has just tipped a load ... there is absolutely no sign of it.

I thought it was a photo at first! This is excellent. Gonna try and overcome my tendency to choose combat over support vehicles. I predict your model will be hard to beat.

I as junior are truck driver , I must after unload all Dump bed area wash .My truck is all time only rusty or wet but never as mud ball.
I build according to real truck, but for this vehicle I have only photo truck from contemporary time and this is as new.

Nice job. I would have expected more weathering in the bed. Still, it looks great. Well done.

Hi Miroslav - another great model from you. I do not know how you find the time, but it is great that you are sharing your work with us.

Junior truck driver - now I know why you build so many trucks

Thanks for sharing and good luck!

Very nice!!

Its cool to see other people who are into logistical vehicles and equipment as much as the big time armor.

Now that is one mean beast of a truck Miloslav, just the right level of wear for a well maintained piece of equipment, all the best in the contest.
