Mini big rig gas truck

Recommended Posts

My first gas job was at a Texaco service station . Remember service stations ? I filled the gas , washed the windows and checked the oil . Also checked tires when asked . Times have changed ! Anyway , I thought I would build a Texaco gas truck . This is a 1/48 scale kit with a multi piece body . I built one of these many years ago and it wasn’t pretty . This kit was issued years ago and was either a Revell or Aurora I can’t recall . Hopefully this will come out better than the last one .

Nice.
I have always wanted to build one of these just to have something more odd then those i have.
(Hard to find anything more odd looking then the Lonestar)

This kit was just rereleased again or am i wrong?

Yes, just released by Atlantis. Pretty nice kit for it's age but multi piece bodies are always can be an issue.

I remember doing one of these kits too, WAY back when.....  I think we're giving away our age Ray!!!!!  😉     Hope the "multi-part" cab goes together well for you!!!!

Don't forget, there was a Kenworth with flatbed trailer and an Honest John Rocket load too! The Kenworth pops up every so often.

Got this model just about done . Still need to install the compartment doors and do some touch ups . All in all not bad for an old kit .
