The Red Lorry from "Men in the Sun"

This is a MOC of the water truck from Ghassan Kanafani book "Men in the Sun." In the book the truck was described only as a massive red lorry, so I just did my best to try and recreate that idea. Like all my stuff, it isnít based on any real truck, but on what one could have looked like.
About this creation
About the MOC:
The truck was built for a school project in which a needed a picture to go along with an school essay I wrote related to the book "Men in the Sun." The MOC was just supposed to be a quick simple build but ended up taking about 3 hours. After that I just couldnít get myself to take it apart again. Then I realized, if it is good enough to keep it is good enough to put online.

The truck is supposed to look like an old reliable; a little rusty with the dirt of 500,000 miles on it, but able to make it another 500,000. Here we see the 4 main characters, the 3 passengers and the driver. I liked the truck so much that I have actually kept it up on my shelf along with my other LEGO vehicles even though it isnít the same scale.

As far as the book goes I didn't really like it, it had to do with the terminal in Palestine and was very depressing, but I got a good LEGO truck out of it so it worked out in the end.

The SNOT front:
This is what gave me the idea to use this kind of technique on the Nifty Fifty.

A question to those who read this:
I often use LEGO in relation to school projects, would you like to see me upload more school related LEGO stuff?

Very nice truck, and well worth uploading. In answer to your question; if your other school stuff is as good as this we'd love to see it.
