BRBO 2021 My Ho 1/87 tow trucks


Recommended Posts

Here's a pair of Athearn ho 1/87 trucks the wrecker is going to get stripped and rebuilt new paint striping.

Photo etched exhaust shields for both trucks 

Driptroit 8v92 from ralph radcliffe resins bunch of other stuff coming for them will both have alcoa steers and either wobbly drives or budd 2 hole 

The tractor will also belong to the towing company as an accident trans load set painted to match the wrecker or as a bobtail to tow the wrecked trailer away

The size of my builds get larger as I get older, not smaller.  

It amazes me what you do in this scale. 

I agree, 1/25 scale trucks is about as small as I really like to work with. 

Those are really cool trucks.
