Tractor Trailer from "Maximum Overdrive" - Help?

26 April 2015 - 08:33 AM

I have seen someone on FB doing wonders with building a truck to match the "Happy Toyz" gremlin semi truck and want to build one myself.

 

1: What truck IS this? (I'm thinking Kenworth)

2: What is the closest model truck in 1:24 or 1:25 scale that is out there that comes close to it?

3: Is he sourcing the decals out on the web for the trailer and then printing them off?

4: It looks like I can use a "head" from a 12" Green Goblin toy from the "Spiderman" movie line as the gremlin face. Think it's possible?

 

I don't know if he's on here but I want to make up that truck as best I can.
