do a search in google images and used the words 1/72 concrete truck. Dozens of models pop up
If I'm not building models, I'm out riding my dirtbike

Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Agi-truck (concrete mixer) drivers are renowned in the construction industry for being able to get them bogged on any site.  I dread to think what the pilot of a flying one would be able to do.

- Can't be bothered to do the proper research and get it right.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

According to various sites the dimensions of the mixer kit are 90 x 32 x 43 mm.

Closest thing to a side-view photo I could find:


The mixer barrel might be a bit more than half the overall length?

You might be able to get a better idea from the sprue drawings on the kit instructions:
