White 3000, Lowboy and Galion Roller, Done.

Recommended Posts

Finally finished the lowboy for the White tractor to haul the Galion roller around. The lowboy is made from an AMT kit and a lot of Evergreen strip and structural shapes to give it the vintage fixed gooseneck look. A balsa deck and a scratch built pony motor driven winch in the neck complete the build. The White 3000 is an old build from about 30 years ago using a Rick Manz cab and a LOT of effort to make it work. It has a White Mustang flathead engine and is based on a Dodge L-700 chassis. I repainted it recently and treated it to custom decals, and a general freshening up. The Galion roller is scratch built and can be seen elsewhere in this forum. All in all, a very fun build spread out over about 30 years! But, it certainly was worth it! Hope you enjoy it.DSC_0001-th.jpgDSC_0002-th.jpgDSC_0002-th.jpgDSC_0005-th.jpgDSC_0006-th.jpgDSC_0007-th.jpgDSC_0008-th.jpgDSC_0009-th.jpgDSC_0010-th.jpgDSC_0011-th.jpgDSC_0012-th.jpgDSC_0018-th.jpgDSC_0019-th.jpgDSC_0020-th.jpgDSC_0021-th.jpgDSC_0022-th.jpg

This whole outfit is some outstanding scratchbuilding.  Excellent work all the way around.  I thoroughly enjoyed watching the Galion roller coming together: who needs a kit if you got some styrene pieces.

Great touch Tom with the real wood and staining, nothing better than real wood or metal on our models.

A great looking set, very realistic.
