Brockway 758

Recommended Posts

While waiting for paint to dry on the Cascadia, I decided to start on a Brockway 758. I got the cab conversion from AITM. I am using a Diamond Reo kit for the chassis and an engine from the Freightliner DD cabover kit. So far I have added a recess to the firewall to fit the cummins engine, shortened the frame, and used a piece of tubing to replicate a tag axle. I am using a metal steerable front axle from KFS.

Excellent work. Great use of the tag axle on the tandem. Very accurate and correct, and often overlooked detail.

Added brake detail, most of the plumbing, and started working on the wheels.

Looks nice, Kurt. 

I need to add a Brockway to my connection none of these days.  Just seems like the right thing to do living in CNY.

Very nice!! I like the tag axle idea. I'm planning a little different tag set up on the Highbinder that I hope to build next year.

Kurt are you looking at opening up the hood? I know the resin is pretty thick on the hood but could be thinned.

Thanks guys! I am planning on leaving this one as a curbside. It will have an engine, but the hood won't open.
