this project started with a re build using an old kit, I scratchbuilt the holmes gear and intended to use the AMT body work, but changed my mind and scratchbuilt the body too, the cab was altered with revel pete heavy duty front wings and a bro wrecker bumper, but during some internet research I found a photo of an autocar run by George Logan towing, so decided to make a sort of copy of that truck

sorry about the quality of some of the photo,s, hope the build makes sense, it took about 6 months on and off to complete, started just after Christmas and completed in june, for a comp, but was unplaced, theres also a sister truck to this that's still a work in progress, will post up pics soon

Brutal! looks like it could swat just about anything out of the way

 

I found a real life big ugly. ( Though not as intimidating as yours) :)

Although I prefer a factory-clean antiseptic finish on my own builds your wheathered model is outstanding.

 

I wonder if the driver looks as neglected as his truck.

You call it ugly- I call it a beauty. Nothing finer than a well-worn workhorse if you ask me.
