Here is my Dodge Big Horn dump truck. The cab is from Frontier Resin Design and I use the newly issued Revell KW dump truck for the frame and dump body. I replaced the Cat diesel with a Cummins NTC -350. I used Model Masters Chrysler Yellow and high gloss clear coat. This is my first time to use Alclad II for the front grill and bumper. Your comments are more than welcome as I'm always looking to make a better build. Thanks.

I'm still deciding on what to name my dirt hauling company so there's the reason for no names on the side yet as you can see this is the second rig of many more to come.

Thanks for your comments guys it was a fun build with it going together with very little problem being that it was a resin cab. One thing that I had to do was change out the quad head lights to make it stock.

sharp looking truck, Dan. Those big Horns were a tough truck in their day. For some reason though they were not very popular with fleet owners. I like the display base that you have.

Better get that dump body down before you get of  that street corner... :D  Very nice truck you have there! Quite an unusual subject. Nicely done, i like the ram horns on the hood!

Dave, they are on eBay for $ 65 and yes it comes with the interior. The only thing is that it comes with 4 head lights instead of the 2 that were on them.
