Scale I Build

Found 1 result

  1. Hey Guys. I was trawling through google images a few weeks back looking for a new project and I came across this. I Have always had a soft spot for early trucks, pre war mostly and I wanted to do a build that stood out from the rest. I have also been lucky enough to own a few full size ones in my time although they were little more than gutted shells I was able to get measurements and ideas for future builds. While I like the later trucks I figured it was time to get an early build started, one with a difference. This is a 1935 Ford COE, as far as I know these were the first of the Ford COE trucks, correct me if I am wrong ! These came in a number of configurations from a 112 inch wheel base right up to about 157 inches. Anyway here is the concept, as I stated previously this will be one with a difference. The truck will basically look like the one in the image below, only with a longer chassis and a tandem drive rear end, possible a Timkin set up. Here is where it gets interesting though, it won't just be one truck, but three. The main truck will be a semi with a trailer. On the trailer there will be two more, one will be another COE and the other will be a conventional version, all 35 Fords. I have seen various images of trucks carrying trucks and I thought it would be a cool project to kick off. The truck in the colour image below this one is appears to have a different trim on the hood, its flat, I actually prefer the beak shaped trim on the first one which is why it will be the lead truck.
