Scale I Build

Found 1 result

  1. I fire-crewed for the USFS in N. Cal. to put myself through college in the '60s (five summers): now I'd like to build a class 3 forest fire tanker. These were slip-on units mounted on regular flatbed trucks which were self-contained with tank, pump, hoses, tool boxes and crew seats (out in the open!) and painted the old gray over green colors. I'll need some decals for the doors; the Forest Service 'shield' and the 'for official use only' block, mostly. Does any one know of a supplier for such stickers? Also, the two trucks I was most involved with were a 1956 Chevy (265, but it tried harder!) and a 1964 Dodge (more torque, but not always reliable), and I wonder if anyone makes these as kits? Of course, '55 would work for the Chevy, and Dodge made similar cab designs for a number of years. It would be too much to hope that anyone had a slip-on class 3 unit to sell, but I think I can fab that; side tool boxes, B&S lunger motor and Gray Marine pump, etc. would be nice to locate. Also, I was foreman on a class 4 tanker, a LWB Dodge Power Wagon 4x4, which might be more available? Last season I worked was '68, then the draft got me! I'm 73, and trying to build all my collection; would like to add these. Any help would be appreciated!! I have some neat early '60s stuff to trade.
