Well, let's open new project in new year!

I wanted to start it 10 years ago.

I recently bought front bumper and 6,6 Duramax engine at Trailertrash Kustoms. Here is the bumper set. It has 2 variants of fog light lenses.

With white fog lights

5_online

Reverse side has some cavities, but nothing, that can't be fixed.

Unfortunatelly bumper is too narrow, even for 1/25. It should be 96 mm, but it is only 89 mm.

7_online

I will build 1/24. Here is the engine set. It has two variant of valve heads and 3 small cilindrical pieces in front. One is alternator (but I can't identify - which) and two others - I don't know.

Two part pulley/belt set is tied by masking tape, so you don't mistake they relative position

And here are billets for the frame

13_online

It unused frame from Revell's Peterbilt Can Do wrecker. Now I'm not sure: if I use this frame and cut & fill all the brackets or use stright KFS or brass tube frame...

Interesting build. Where will you source the Top Kick cab and front clip from?

Here's an example of a kit that could be offered in multiple forms, kinda like the upcoming Moebius 66 F100 series.

 

Looking forward to seeing this one completed!

The one is definitely the alternator/generator correct. The other is probably the AC that sits in the middle of the drive system at the top near the intake. The last one... not sure. Could be a dual alternator set up. Unless it is a CP3 injection pump that is meant for high output applications. 

I will be following this build, Can't wait to see it come together!

If you have a brookfield chevy van or two, they can be cut down for the cab. Being the cab of the topkick is the same sheet metal as the full size chevy vans from 96 to when ever.
