I built this truck in the late 90's while out on workmens comp with a back injury. All told I think I built three or four tractors and maybe six trailers. I still have them but they are all in need of some sort of repairs or in need of a total rebuild. The model is basically box stock except for the headache rack from Rick Mark. And the model is lightly weathered. The Pick up is a modified Revell snap kit with the Utility body and top from Moelhaus ! Comments and criticisms are welcome. Be Well Gator
I have this one started now but it's going rather slow. The cab is a 1/16 Ertl International diecast cab from the 70's. The trailer is a Wyanndott pressed steel trailer for the early 50's. As you can see the cab has been well played with a painted several times. Here is the cab cleaned up and shown with the tailer as found.
I got this truck from my dad. It did have dual rear axles, and I removed one, moved the remaining one up to a point central to the two and set it there. I lengthened the driveshaft and beefed up the frame a bit. I added Evergreen square tube to the rear top part of the frame, after removing the big rig trailer hauling apparatus thing (you might know what I mean). The bed is from some tandem trailer, cut a bit. I added a CB radio with antenna, blacked out the grille to give it a bit of a newer look (plasticky, more like) and weathered the whole thing with rust powder underneath and black wash on EVERYTHING except for the front windshield. Bumper is currently AWOL, but I cut it so it's only as wide as the grill. This was fully unpainted when I got it. All baby blue and black. Now it's all Farmall Red and black! Actually, this is a perfect match for Farmall paint. We got it to repaint our Farmalls, a Cub with a PTO and dually rear wheels, an A (which we sold) and an H which hasn't been repainted yet because it runs terribly and is awaiting restoration.
Hi Everyone, Last September I took a brief vacation to British Columbia and discovered some nice old trucks along the way, so took some photos / video and made up a youtube video of my finds. Mostly construction / excavation dump trucks, but also spotted an Autocar ! Haven't gotten around to building any trucks lately, but hope to get to a few this year. Hope you enjoy and maybe a little inspiration for a future build, Felix
