    But will it be just truckmode?

    Yep, that truck is huge, guys. That's a freaking OVEN window behind Optimus.

    So looking forward to this!

    Thanks guys I looked everywhere for a smaller scale truck but the only other one I saw was 1:35 scale model kit of a similar but older style mack tanker, this bruder truck is almost exactly the same one used in the movie. I'm actually really liking working on a large scale project, much less fiddly !!

    I have scratch built the bull bars using a plastic coat hanger which I heated and bended into shape.
    I wanted one side to look bent to give a more damaged and old look, I have still got to fit more parts to it.
