Thanks guys. without the help of some great people here which I'll name in the finished pics, I couldn't have gotten these done. I'd like to try Defiance, and or the wheel standing Freightliner COE. But can't find many pics at all

Have a look here Alan, there are some pictures of the Defiance Allison 1710 V12 Powered Wheelstander Freightliner at the link.

If you go to the next page there are also some pictures of the highly modified Detroit Diesel 6V-92 powered Hurricane Kenworth truck, these two trucks together with the Super Boss, Papa Truck, Hideout Truck and Smokey Bear Corvette...and I think the Boss Truck Of America and the Little Irvy Truck...now belongs to Gary Reis at Stage Coach Diesel Motorsports Museum.

The Defiance wheelstander truck was originally brown with white, red and yellow stripes and was built by Jerald McBee from Oregon and here is an article from the February 1980 Overdrive Magazine with the truck as it originally was.

Malone must have bought it from him sometime in the mid to late 80's and repainted it pink.

Thanks Force there are some great pics there, I think they would be beyond my ability to make. I will have to try the vette if I can find a car trailer that looks right.

The Mama is done now just wating on the air conditioning unit for the roof. I tried to duplicate the bed decals but they didn't suit me. I may have to skip them. :(

Since you mentioned the Defiance Truck I thought I would help out with what I have found...It can be built with an AMT White Freightliner, an AMT Parts Pack Allison 1710, some modifications and some scratchbuilding...so it's not impossible, it just some work and determination involved.

The Hurricane is probably harder to do as it needs a lot more work and modifications...but for sure possible if one wants to.

Revell has a nice dual axle trailer to do the trailer towed behind the Hideout Truck for the Smokey Bear Corvette, the AMT dual axle display case box trailer or a Galaxie Limited tag along dual axle box trailer could be modified to resemble the trailer towed behind the Papa Truck.

 

Malone also had other trucks, the light blue Old No 8 KW K100 108 Inch flat top cab with dromedary body wich pulled the living quarters trailer, the blue with white, blue and yellow stripes KW W900B Aerodyne wich pulled a lowboy trailer and the Old Blue 67 KW W900 truck wich pulled the Little Irvy trailer.

 Force,

Good info. I would like to try the others. Just a matter of getting the right stuff. Time I have lots of.
