Stepp's Towing Can-Do Mega Wrecker

19 April 2015 - 11:24 AM

After abandoning two previous wrecker builds I figured I'd better wait until I finished one before I posted anything!  :lol:  I just got done with this one yesterday...a Stepp's Towing Can-Do 21"-long "Megawrecker". Enjoy!  :)

1/16 Peterbilt 359 Wrecker

23 March 2015 - 09:40 AM

I built this model about 15 years ago but I thought it could use a thread of it's own since I'm relatively new to the MCM forums. It's a 1/16-scale Peterbilt 359 wrecker based somewhat on the 1/25 Stepp's Towing wrecker. I only have a few in-progress photos, mainly taken when I was waiting for parts to come back from being chromed.

So how do you work on this?

This sharp-looking COE would be cool as a model, but how in the heck do you do engine maintenance on it? Would it really tilt like a regular COE?

Yet another Revell wrecker

08 February 2015 - 02:45 PM

After abandoning my 1/16 wrecker project for the 2nd and probably final time, I decided to come back into the 1/25 fold. This is my first 1/25 project in many years, a Revell wrecker body stretched to accept an extra axle. I considered making it a Lone Star but it'll be a Peterbilt. The frame is red and so far I haven't settled on a color for the rest of it. Who knows, it may end up just being a Big Red Truck!  :lol:

Transtar II reissue?

07 February 2015 - 06:27 PM

I wonder why, with all the reissues of the old kits over the past few years, the Transtar II hasn't come back out. It seemed to be a very popular kit back in the 70's and when it came back out in the 90's, so I think it'd sell quite well in today's market.
