That truck looks AMAZING!! My neighbor had one of these when I was a kid,ugly yellow paint, with the yellow slant six,4 speed, 4X4 with a stepside bed. He passed away and the kids sold the farm. Truck is still sittng behind the house rusting away. I'm hoping to buy it off the new owners.
Dan, I think I'm going to leave the quads in as they give it a different look. Kinda reminds me of the 79 Newport my parents had when I was a kid. I'd love to see some pics of your Bighorn.
I've got to figure out a color for the frame and running gears.
Well, I'm back at it again, repainted the cab in black. Not really happy with it though. Still going to use the headache rack but not the winch. Installed a Cummins NTD 350 I scored unbuilt off Evilbay awhile back. As soon as my camera shows up fom being MIA, I'll get some pics up of the progress
Scania sold a few trucks here in the U.S. As to numbers, I couldn't tell you.During my high school years I used to help my dad and his friend on the weekends. They used a cabover Scania log truck, wasn't anything fancy but it got the job done. They used it for everything from moving equipment to pulling out other stuck trucks. I haven't seen the old girl in several years,so if it's still running???? I don't know.
I have 2 different sets. The ones on the BigHorn are soft resin and the other set is standard resin. I used parts box wheels so, I'm not sure what scale the soft resin ones are. The hard resin set is getting Italeri wheels so, I'm almost positive that they are 1/24 scale.
