GMC Topkick Rollback with 64 GMC 1 ton


Recommended Posts

I picked this bed and cab up from Mikemodeler, thanks again! This is the best resin Topkick that I have seen. It came complete with battery boxes and tanks. I used the new release of the old Ertl 4300 for the chassis. I cut down an Italeri Cummins to represent a 3116 Cat, although the hood doesn’t open. The 1 ton GMC was built specifically for this rollback project.

Nice job with both of them. A nice clean build for the Topkick, looks fresh, maybe out on one of its first jobs. The ol gmc is great too. Nice details in the bed, and I like the old rag for a fuel cap.

That is spectacular Brian! Love how you used the IH chassis and that old GMC for the load is great too!

Thanks Mike! I appreciate getting to meet you and picking both the cab and the bed from you.

Looks great per usual! Do you by chance have any pictures of the engine? Curious to see how it looks!

 Thanks Alex!!

I didn’t take any pictures of the engine. I got the oil pan measurement from the real thing. I then took an Italeri Cummins and cut it down to match those measurements. I chose that engine because of the basic shape and I had one junk. The oil filter and starter were very close to the right place when finished. It can only be seen from the under side as I made inner fenders. I will try to get some under shots later.

Somehow I missed this one, I like everything about it, the rusted chevy is awesome. Great craftsmanship on display here. I almost missed it. 

 Thanks Mario!!

Awesome job, Brian! Really like the look. Can you send me the measurements of the cab? I have an .stl file of a 1970 C90 that I would like to resin print. The first one was a tad small and needs a few tweaks.

Thanks Brian! I have a mid 70s C60 cab. Would you rather me measure that? I also have a 9500 cab.

Thats a cool combo! Where did you get the gmc grill and v6?

Thanks Seth! The grille, side emblems and engine came from Rookie Resin. The hood was found on Ebay. I made the rear window conversion myself.
