Dave Burket aka ModelKing had me build this little truck, yeah I know, it's a pick up, but there's a Big Dog behind it! Another ModelKing reissue.

The Mack DM800 is a great kit, and a nice donor for several aftermarket resin kits, especially those from AITM (www.aitruckmodels.com) and if you add some bigger resin wheels and tires from RNK Conversions (www.rnkconversions.com) you can have a really heavy 'Dog.

This DM800 is straight out of the box but with most of the chrome removed.
The '79 Ford 4x4 is about to be reissued by ModelKing-AMT and builds nicely.
Lots of things you can build the pick-up as.. such as a Tim's Tire Service truck here, or maybe a Peterbilt dealer's service truck.. lots of ideas!
My Ford is Duplicolor metallic silver with clear coat, Bare Metal Foil for the body side moldings, windshield trim, wheel arches and grille.


Thanks for looking!

Tim

I admire your building skills, everything you do, and photograph, turns out so well!

The Mack, I've already bought. The Ford-I have some questions about.

Is it based on the AMT F350s anually produced thry the late 70s? I don't recall a 4x4 version back then. Did they issue one then? I did convert a 2wd to a 4wd in the late 80s. Still have it, but it's rather boring. Needs a makeover or something.
There's no doubt I'll want a few of these to replace the unbuilt projects I lost in a fire 9 years ago! Have you seen the dogfights for these in eBay, even for junkers? Dan
