So at last the most complicated part of kit (truck) is completed. Unfortunately couldn't get rid of "orange peel" effect on body, tried two times with different paint/warnish combinations (I wanted to achieve silky gloss finish), but result was almost the same. Anyway too much time is spent on this kit so I leave all as it.
Finish looks pretty decent👍 what paints did you use?
For body I use Alclad Black Base + 3 wet coats of ModelMaster Sealer for Metalizer.

Thanks, Bozzer! Actually my patience slowly drains out, kit is really garbage. The only good thing is that chassis is almost complete and looks good enough, considering how bad was original parts. I'll post pics later.
Don't give up, mate, You are doing a very good job. I'm excited to see the result.
You are going to Kindigit it all the way 😄 all litlle adjustments but making the whole truck much better 👍
Thanks, mates! 🙂
OK, here are pics of chassis. Some small final touches are required but overall, everything is complete. I ran into problems with chrome paint on mudguards so I repaint and add them later. And transmission joint isn't installed yet because it is easer to keep chassis in hand without it.
Every picture, just amazes me!

Old, but nice kit. Built right OOB, just some small details are added and vinyl tubes replaced with thinner ones. No WIP pictures, this was planned as quick built but finally comes out as very long work with many breaks. A new paints was tested and this was my first experience with 2K lacquer and polishing. During work I accidentally splash thinner over clear parts of front light and right turning signal light so inner pattern of them was damaged. Did some unsuccessfully restore attempts and finally cover them with Tamiya Smoke to look tinted.
