1950's White 3000

Recommended Posts

Calling this one done.  Cab from Jimmy Flintstone, Chassis, engine, wheels, tires, interior from Lindberg Dodge.  Headlights from AITM, fuel tanks from AITM's Rubber Duck kit and cut down, steps from Auslowe.  Move the exhaust to veritical.  Colors are Tamiya red chassis, Testors dark pearl green acrylic with Testors light green accent and interior.  Loosely based on a 1956 White 3000 I saw at a show many years ago.  Altered the suspension to remove some of the forward rake but the prototype has a noticable front rake so I left some in.

Very nice work!!! I never really gave these trucks a second look before, but after seeing how great you guys make them look, I may have to try one some day myself. I really like the colors on this one!

That came out GREAT!!!!  That chassis/running gear was a perfect donor for the White cab.

Great job on one of my favorite trucks! Was an old one deserted on a gravel lot by the old rail yard in town when I was a kid and we spent many hours "driving" it all over the country! (until bumble bees took it over) LOL

Now that I see how one turns out I will have to get one!

Thanks for posting!

Very nice model, Warren - that gives me an idea what to do with my ugly Dodge (seems to be the ideal donor for the White 3000)!

Thanks again, yes, I think the Dodge Lindberg kit is probably the best.  It does have square fuel tanks, so if you like the round tanks, you'll have to adapt.  You'll want to raise the front suspension, the Dodge has way too much rake.  The interior isn't bad, just shave the sides a bit and it'll fit right in.
