I 've read about this truck.The 1/1 is a 5 ton truck chassis with 1 ton axles.I'd start with an AITM cab,AMT ford Louisville frame,Lindbergh L700 engine /trans but should use an automotive big block for some better detailed bits and pieces. ,and rear fenders off a little red truck kit.I cant say where to get 1 ton axles though.
I might build an AMT lowboy for this because I stumbled on a single axle oilfield truck with a 5th wheel mounted 3rd axle that I think is neat.Too many ideas ,no real direction yet other than its going to be a W921.Looking at the other entries and were all facing some serious competition so far
I watched my dad build most of the original issues starting at age 5.I think I had model cars about age 7.My first rig was a diamond reo about age 11.A reissued diamond reo was also my first truck after picking the hobby up again in the late 90's
I have purchased the new Mobius kits ,but enjoy the round2 the most .Not because of price as mentioned earlier ,but because they have the best subject matter.I would enjoy another modern kit of just about any brand.Round2 business plan is reissueing old kits not making new molds,unless is a small repair for some thing.I have to counter point the opinion that we need new kits that youner people recognize...young people don't build too many kits any more.Models seem to be for older people any more and I don't blame the companys reissuing stuff to cash in on the older people havin disposable cash to buy kits they missed or for nostalgic reasons.
