1974 Dodge Bighorn - Done!!!


Recommended Posts

I think I'm ready for another truck. I have a Big Horn waiting. I think it is a Frontier Resins piece.

 I posted three photos of where  I could go with it;

-Working rig, I have a KFS crane which would go well with that.

I like the daycab. The Tackaberry's always do a nice job with their trucks

Is the type of toolbox on the Tackaberry truck available on the aftermarket? I suppose it could be scratch built easy enough. What is it called?

Pat another great model subject to build and any of your 3 types will look good. This a Frontier resin cab I built mine as a dump truck a couple years ago. I used the Chevy Titan head lights instead of the 4 that are on the cast. Looking forward to see where you go with this one.

More for the sounding board. While it looks like they ran mostly 250 Cummins I thought I'd go a different route.

I have :

CAT 3406, NTC 475 (twin turbo), CAT 1160, Detroit Series 60, 12V71T and two Mercedes engines which would nod to the brief Daimler-Chrysler association which occurred many years later.

Pat that hood is long enough for a V16 Hemi.  Going to be cool. 

I do have a V16, will have to check that too.

very nice and really like your "shop". 

Just to throw one more power plant oddity, keeping in the bloodlines of Mopar, and seeing your obvious talents, how about a Chrysler "eggbeater" tank engine?

Peace

While we're into tank engines, how about this one?
