Hey Gang, 

 

I was doing a quick research on trailers and found this little bit of clip showing a cool truck and trailer diecast model in 1/50. I will love to have something like this in regular 1/24 scale as a kit. Anyway, i hope you guys will enjoy it....I know I did..

Yeah, I just saw the price myself. I didn't realize diecast models can cost that much. The complete setup of the tractor/trailer over $350...wow is right!! I wouldn't mind building one in 1/24. Looks totally cool with that extra bumper and lights.

Very nice, but to rich for my blood. It does have awesome details, and would be super huge in 1/25 scale.

Yea there at the top of the list for the detail in 1/50 scale.

 

As far as the cost of one of these it will get very high in 1/24 1/25 scale also.

You would pretty much need one of there's to get the details for the bigger trucks right.

OR do a LOT of research and you still may miss something you cant see in a photo.

 

You may be able to build one for around $500.00 by the time you by the 1/24 1/25 scale truck all the tires,plastic to scratch build it.

And also the scratch building skills to jump on something like this.

 

However you would have a very nice rig and a rare one on top of that.

 

Then you could sell it to some serious collector or big company and get your money back with some profit.

 

Just a thought.
