The rims came from a old MPC dodge truck, the truck could be built as a 3/4 ton baha 4x4, or a 1/2 ton 2x4. the rims scaled out to about 18" so I cut the centers out and they fit perfectly into the outer rim from the revell chevy 4x4. I don't really care for the tread on the trackers but the size works well.

Nice model, Cam! :lol:

And thanks for the info on the wheels- I'll need to dig up a set for a model of my 1:1 '94 250 4x2! :lol:

It's dirty, salt stained and rusty. It's gorgeous! Like that very much!

I'm down in Georgia, so I'd love to see some detail on the plow. Haven't seen one since I left Colorado back in 84.

I'd love to post some more pics, but at the end of last month my son spilled a 20 oz cup of iced tea into my laptop. Pretty much kilt it. all my pics and software for my camera is gone, I'm on a borrowed computer right now, can only use it, can't load anything on it. Being out of work won't get a new one any time soon. I used my 1.1 Fisher 8' plow to scratch build that one.

Man my unlce is so poed he says you stole his truck straight out of the barn :lol:

Seriously though, he's got a '92 f350 single wheel in the same paint scheme, as a plow truck, I was shocked to see this.

Nice job. Looks a little too clean for a plow-truck though, at least around here, unless it's used for a little more than plowing.

great job on the ford what did you use for the 4x4 conversion

I used the monogram F-250 for the rear springs,rear axle and engine. I used the monogram bronco for the front axle, trans, transfer case and tires. the bell housing came from a johan torino stock car.

front springs came from a odd kit, it was the revell bronco with race boat. I built that truck about 17 years ago, before the kids came along. I remember spending 5 or 6 months planning and collecting

the parts that I wanted before starting it. Seems like I had more time and money back then.
