Pinky , would the model ( dish hubs ) be a rear wheel drive and the protruding hubs , 4 wheel drive ?  I'm not really a car nut but that's what 4 wheel drive pick ups hub  look like around here . And there's tons of them here in Alberta

CMP Ford 4 wheel drive

CMP Ford 2 wheel drive . I assume the Chev versions would look just about  the same , except for the Chev logo on the grill

I don't knowing that's the explanation, Ripley, but I couldn't find any photos of vehicles with the same front hubs as the kit.  Your front wheel drive version looks different.

Here's what seems to be the most common hub type:

That's about the only difference I can think of . Maybe different suppliers were involved in making the parts for the trucks . I know there are a few collectors sites out there, in Canada and the UK . Very popular vehicle in western Canada , every other farm yard seems to have a wreck of one of the body styles rusting away

Enjoy!

That looks good.

Wikipedia says late 1941 onward for the no. 13 can.

This seems to have progressed very quickly.  It all looks good to me - the detail on the cab and canopy are especially fine.

WOW.
That looks superb.
At least 400% better than the crappy resin one i have now.
