Paystar 5000 and a dump gravel Trailer Update 12-31

Recommended Posts

A very good friend of mine sent me two models for Christmas. They were shipped together, One Reissued Paystar 5000 (Cement Mixer) and a Original issue of the Dump gravel trailer. After looking on the internet I found a photo of a paystar 5000 hauling a gravel dump trailer. The first picture is what I'm going to replicate with the mixer kit and Trailer, And I have plans for the mixer parts for another truck kit. Maybe a Transtar 4300 mixer?

Nice, one of my Favorite trucks. I had a liking for the Paystar 5000. Are you going to do a 2 axle or 3 axle dump trailer. l will be following this build. The cab and engine look Great.

Well here is the Paystar almost done, just some touch up paint work , stack , Tail lights and a fifth wheel to go. On to the Trailer next which like the photo will be a duel axle instead of the tri axle.

Looking great. Where did you get the rear tires? I like the military tread and it is very close to the original picture.

Those rear tires come in the kit. Three of the four Paystar 5000 kits come with them. The only one I am aware of that don't is on the one pictured here.

I always wondered why they put military style NDT's on a civie truck.  Can't recall ever seeing them outside the military, they really aren't good on pavement.  Fair on dirt roads, not good in mud and on wet pavement, you might as well be driving on ice.  There are much better choices.....

Add Mack rears and a pair of NDT's up front and you'll have a period correct military Paystar 5000. I don't mind the tires, it's something different on the shelf.
