I bought the kt for the 5 spoke wheels, to modify and pull resin copies, but I started to build the truck today.
The frame assembles easy, which is a big plus, and surprisingly not much flash on the cab..seriously, just two mold lines on the back. Surprising since this kit is almost 40 years old.
The downer as with most big truck kits is the suspension, very thick mold lines. only way to really get rid of them is to build your own leafs, but I wont do that, as the kit will never get finished!
I assembled the whole frame including crossmembers and radiator, to be painted as one. suspension will be partially painted with the chassis, some things are just mocked up.
I'm going for a weathered plow truck, you know the 500 dollar special, that sits on the work parking lot all year waiting for the big storm, to be fired up.
I will most likely be using budd 6 hole wheels on this.
Plow is from the Lnt8000 dump truck.
It will use a flat bed and maybe the sanding gear, with a box of sand in the back, possibly some manual labor pitching sand into the shooter!
