This appears to be the original,

although its listed as a 1930 model.

Too bad we can't see the date on the license plate.

Can't figure why a 1918 poster would be on a truck in 1930
(and a color photograph instead of a black and white one, in that year)

I can not find a 1930s era photograph of a mail truck with the poster.

Trucks with the poster all seem to be restored versions,
and photos taken after restoration.

Regards, Dave L.

My best guess is that the same poster was used in WW2 as well.

The trucks were possibly used up till the early '50s,
and there are photos of postal trucks with signs on them in the '30s.

So it is feasible that wartime posters were on them post WW2.

Ken

You are correct,
that the poster was reprinted for WWII use.

I've put aside the Gn15 vehicles for a little while.

Waiting until the weather warms up,
and I can paint on the deck again.

I am looking forward to working on
the 1927 Graham Brothers dump truck.

Here's 1:25 and 1:87 posing side by side.

:shocked:

Regards, Dave L.

I will have to slice the body just behind the cab window.

I have a cut off blade for my ten inch chop saw.
My son will have to do it for me out on the deck.

I may have to do something with the fenders, too.

A crude mock-up of the dump truck.

This is what the project hopefully looks like when completed.

My friend Jon sent photos of his latest project.

He started with a 1936 Dodge convertible diecast,
and added a top.

He says he has a little more work,
filling imperfections.

Thought you'd like to see it.

Regards, Dave L.
