Mars Attacks Truck Kitbash

Getting ready for a big move. Much packing, few supplies readily available... I did however start kit-bashing one of my Mantic Mars Attacks trucks.

Looking at a wheel swap and covered bed from a Chinese 1/55 diecast of a Russian Kraz 6x6. Think I might magnetize the bed to allow payload swaps (tanker, SAM missile launcher etc.).

I still need to stretch the frame, a bit in the rear wheel well to accommodate the bigger tires, but mostly aft of the mud flaps to align the rear bumper with the tailgate - might slap a spare tire up in that space.
