This model is a rebuild of a model that suffered from an overdose of cat assisted gravity. The original model, which  is several years old, is a kit bash of left over parts from an Ertl  IH farm wagon kit and a RoG Unimog cab and chassis. The Unimog fram was altered to fit the wagon's dump box. The Rog Dunlop tires have bleed oil since I opened the box. as the oil came out the sidewalls got brittle and cracked. I substituted 11:00-20 AMT tires in their place. The load of corn is carved extruded Styrofoam covered in corn meal.

Now there's something different and really cool! Great work! The driver figure brings it to life. Using corn meal = genius!

That is a strange thing for tires to do...usually they just melt into the body or glass of kits?....if they do that finding a set with wheels wont be easy.

Sorry for the delay in getting back with some answers. And thanks for the kind words also.

I still have the original Dunlops. I was considering trying to mold and cast the best of the lot. a couple are beyond use. Ii should have built in mold release agent.

I'm thinking that I should continue with the grain elevator diorama and include the Unimog in it.

Thanks

Carl

Very nice! One tough looking truck, despite the colour! Love that dirt and the windscreen wipe is very realistic.

Unimogs have a huge cool factor. Well...and just a huge factor. Nice job with this, Carl.
