BRBO 2022 “Super Bee Services “ KW w/Lowboy


Recommended Posts

For this year’s BRBO I’m using the Revell KW dump truck kit for my cab that’s going to pull a detachable lowboy with a Mack DM 600 steel hood/Challenge mixer. Today I started working on frame for the KW.

So if I'm following this, the KW cab from the dump truck goes on the Mack chassis, the cab of which replaces the KW cab on the mixer kit.

Warren I’m turning the Revell KW dump truck into just a cab that will tow the lowboy that I’m going to carry the Mack/Challenge mixer on. I will be busy building the KW cab, detachable lowboy, Mack DM 600 with a steel hood and with the Challenge mixer.

Very cool project!! Can’t wait to see where this one is going!

What are you going to do with the dump bed??🤔

Thanks Brian. The dump body is already on the Big Horn dump truck. Back when Revell reissued these kits I picked up 3 of them and have used 2 of them so far on the Big Horn and the Brockway. I have not decided what I’m going to do with the last one yet but it’s going to be a Super Bee Trucking dump truck lol.

You aren't done yet ?  Lol  

Great combo 

Thanks Jeff. You don’t know how many parts boxes I had to go through to get all the parts together for this one. This was the donor for the Big Horn that I built 8 years ago and never had any plans to use the left over parts until now and over the years I have just kept adding to my parts boxes that are not in any kind of organization. lol

I am still trying to get a mental picture of what seems to be a very ambitious build. Good Luck (and following)

All I gotta say is....... That's a lot of trucks!!! LOL

I’ve been able to get white primer on the frame and cab and have pretty much finished the engine and painted green on the rims. I’m trying this Krylon Paint + Primer and it’s drying very slow but it seems to have covered the blue plastic pretty good.

The weather warmed up here and I’ve been able to get some spray painting done. I decided to go with some rear fenders. I’m also going to add a headache rack behind the cab. I still have to paint the front fenders and finish the fuel tanks. Here’s my progress mock up pictures.

Looks great so far, and I am really digging your color scheme, I like putting two or three ‘odd’ colors together.

Thanks Tom
