1983 IH F-2674 Tri-axle Dump

Recommended Posts

This one began with the Ertl Dump truck kit #8029. The engine is a 6v-92T from Auslowe with valve covers from KJ at Double Take Replicas. The lift axle is from Gary at GW Trucks. All of the wheels and tires are from Jamie at moluminum as well as the pintle hitch. Stripes are from Jerry at modeltuckin. The bed was widened. The sides were lowered. The inside and out was sheeted with very thin aluminum that was dented. The tailgate was completely scratch built, along with several other scratch built items. It is meant to represent a recently repainted and refurbished truck that maybe someone bought and decided to go into the dump truck business. For the most part, I'm pretty happy with this one.

You did a great job Brian!

De details are awesome and look real.

The different tires, rims and the 3th axle with the small wheels, are great details on this truck, and especially shows that this is a workhorse.

I also find the tipper with the dents very convincing, all in all a great model!

OH, this turned out beyond cool! You perfectly captured the 'used but not abused' look. Very slick build!

Excellent!

Will you be paying with cash or check. There is also an extra charge for spreading as opposed to simple dumping. Saturday's schedule is pretty full, but it can probably be worked in. 😀

Thanks for the kind words Mike!

Very well done, can you drop me a load of screened loam for the weekend?

Thanks Warren! I've got to take a load of #6 gravel to Spruslayer. How far is it again from Indiana to Connecticut?  😀

Thanks Kerry! The light hides some of the minor exterior weathering that I did.

Now this is excellent all the way around. What a crowd pleaser! It’s got everything. I especially like the dented bed effect, truly spectacular - you’ve got the inside wear from all those loads too! My favorite builds are ones like this, using techniques I can learn from.

Excellent, Brian ! I've never seen such a perfectly detailed dumper body inside - the dents, the bare metal, the ribs on the floor shining through the rust - like the real thing !!!

Killer work

Thanks Cary! As far as techniques go, I learn as I go. 😀 I've had this idea for a while, I just never tried it. Dump trucks are real common around here and especially old steel beds are always full of dents,

Thanks! I tried something new on the radiator hoses. I made them from paper clip wire and then covered them with heat shrink.
