The build is finished and in the Group Builds finished section but I'd asked JohnJ if he new of any 1:24 scale drivers before I closed the cab. At that time he didn't, so I closed the cab. Then this little prepainted guy arrived in the post. Too late to go in the cab but I just had to use him somewhere.

I gave him a newspaper but can't decide which of these poses he should strike.

On the step:



Or in the fresh air and out of the midday sun after lunch:

I like sitting in the shade myself.

Running board. To much trust in the parking brake in the other one.
The running board pose looks more natural as well.

Sitting on the lowest bits of the cargo, the canvas will fill in any gaps and mould to the figures shape.

But if the only choice is one of the two above then the running board.

He looks too false in position on the floor, just looks like the figures fell over to me.

I have reconsidered. He actually would look more natural on the running board. SWMBO also votes for the running board.

Hi Al,

I'm with Colin on this one sir, he could be sat up there waiting to be unloaded, I've done it a few times myself in the past...

If not, then lower step...

On the board, in the other position the newspaper would naturally bend towards the ground, unless gravity works differently in the UK
