BRBO Autocar tow truck (DONE)


Recommended Posts

Nice project, gonna look good. Phil Jenson's 'how to' was on the money. Comparing it to a First Gear die cast. I used airplane aileron hinges for the side out riggers doors.

You will probably find something better; this was built when I first saw Phils article way back when.

Hint: From late Tom Showers, here is a method of making round slam locks. Drill a hole the size of the lock, then on the back of the door place thin sheet piece at the lock hole covering it. Take a small dowel of plastic and place in hole at the diameter of the hole. Done many years ago. 

Photo not the greatest. but it is an example of his work.
