R32WA posted a topic in WIP: Model Trucks: Pickups, Vans, SUVs, Light CommercialI have decided my next build is going to be a rat rod wrecker and the only power plant for a dirty old rat is a 5.9 cummins. After looking around and not finding anything I like I decided I'd make my own. I'm lucky enough to own a 3D printer so after a day of drawing here is the first attempt. There will be a lot of work to complete it as the 3D printing leaves a rough surface as you can see. No sump yet, run out of time. Enjoy guys.
Here is my current build, a 41 Chevy wrecker with a 5.9 cummins. So far all the weathering has been done by air brush. This is my first attempt at a ratrod and anything rusty. Feel free to offer some suggestion of where I could improve. I'm happy to learn.
Well i am waiting on parts for my 78 ford havent felt the mini trucks and my silverado and escalade are on the back burner. Ill give ya a hint it aint a Ford. But it was scrap pieces from ebay. I did invest in a resin suspension because it was broken, a resin grille and bumpers, a resin cummins, and some resin mud tires. I will be doing the decals for it myself.
Heres the start, Hacked up a lightning bed and put the sides on the original bed from the 56 ford, then glued the fenders onto the bed. Hoping to make a cummins for it. Mirrors and cab lights from revell peterbilt 359, wheels and tires from ford l8000, hoping for stacks too, and hopefully 4x4. Heres my inspiration a drawing from this past summer and the real deal, followed my my progress.
