Calling all budding model truck builders! Do you think you have what it takes to build your very own mini truck model, using household items? Enter the competition below and you could win some very cool prizes!

Do you think you could create your own truck model?

Have a go at creating your very own truck model and you’ll go in the draw to win some very cool prizes! Use any household items you can find, like cardboard boxes, plastic bottles, wood, containers, duct tape… anything you can think of! It can be built in any scale, and also be completely imaginary with regard to axle/wheel combinations, so let your mind loose! There will also be extra points for the livery design and colour scheme you choose to adorn your rig with.

Our friends at Italeri have very kindly provided three prizes for three separate age groups. The competition closes at midday on Monday 7 November, so you have heaps of time to get creating!

The competition will be run in three categories – up to the age of 7 years, 7 to 14 years, and 14 years and over. The prizes for each of the three age groups will consist of an Italeri kitset model truck and either a New Zealand Trucking or Little Trucker Down Under cap. Pretty cool prizes to work for and plenty of time to get building, so do not hold back and get into it now!

Send photos of your build and builder information to before the competition cutoff to validate your entry… Happy building, we can’t wait to see what you come up with!
