Calling this one done, though I might add a pair of CB antennas.  Chassis is from an old Pete Wrecker kit I built up 30 years ago.  Brockway 361 parts from AITM.  Holmes wrecker body from First Gear via Redneckriggeer.  Per-lux fog lights, custom light bar for wrecker body.  Time will tell if the weight of the metal wrecker body sags the frame.  Paint is Testor's Aztek Metallic Blue Pearl over a white base.

Thanks!  I really wish a resin version of the Holmes was available, I really like the look of the lattice booms.  I know the ex-KFS might be coming some day........

Thanks, as the Aztek line has been discontinued, I've been stocking up.  I really like their pearls!

Nice work, love the color and details. The Holmes wreckers would be nice to have in any version- 440,500,600,750, & 850!
