Ford L9000 Alaskan style

Recommended Posts

This was a fun build inspired by the L9000 driven the the "King of Obsolete" on Ice Road Truckers a few seasons back. It had kind of had a Mad Max or zombie apocalypse feel but a bit more grounded, kind of a what kind of truck would you want at the edge of civilization build. 

I started with two Coke delivery trucks that have been languishing in a box for about twenty years. I bought a resin L hood off eBay and added the sleeper from the GMC General. The rear suspension is from a California Hauler kit and the wheels and engine are from the 4070A. The fifth wheel, mud guards, and mirrors are from the Revell snap 359, the round tanks are from the R685, and the squares are from the Titan 90.

I want to get that white Caddy I showed you done, it's about 75% there and the 69 F-100 and the Mustang for the Cannonball Run. I'm not sure about the next big rig project, I want to build a Revell K100 but I also want to finish the Titan 90 l started a few years ago.
