VERY SWEET BUILD!!!!
I a working on turning a Lil Red Express into basically the same truck.
I have the 4x4 parts from a older model, but I am unhappy with them. Contemplating building my own leaf springs, but I have never tried that before. if you could give me som pointers or even a few more pics of yours, that would be sweet! thanks!

Binder? You know that's an International, right?

Dig the truck, Mr. Bad. B) The 1:1 and the replica.

Thanks..
I just copied the 1:1 trucks using Evergreen Plastic strips and Round stock for ends..
I'd go a bit thicker the next time.

Thanks.
The wheels are a combination of the Custom wheels from AMTs 1955 Chevy Stepside Street Machine
and a set of Monogram wheels for the lip for up sizing the wheels to fit the Aoshima SuperSwampers ..
