Lindberg 1/25 Dodge L-700 & IMC Trailers

Recommended Posts

Here are a couple builds that I used the kits for including the Dodge CN 800 resin.

I know this is an old post but I would like to ask Dan (Mopar D) how you did this trailer. Did you cut it or it came this size? How long is it? I want to do one like this.

Not Dan, but his trailer a a shorty based on using just half of the IMC / Testors / Lindberg van trailer. I actually used half of a van kit to build a Dodge L700 delivery truck.

Thanks A.J. I like your truck, nice color combination. So, all parts fit nicely without cutting? Thanks again!

Angelo the trailer that comes in the kit is this size you have to glue the two halfs together to make the 48' trailer. No cutting required. Sorry for the delay

Thank you Dan! I bought the Lindberg (IMC) trailer and ended up cutting half of one of the halves. So now it is approx 13 inches long. I want to make a 28' trailer, single axle. Still in progress.

Actually at the time this trailer was originally tooled, the max length

for a Semi trailer was 40 feet not 48

Those did not start for almost another 20 years

I think 45's Might have been about 15 years after this kit was

tooled, but, still a Long way off back then

I might be mildly interested in the box trailer if it comes back, but not if it's in combination with the L700.  Don't need another one of those.

Just noticed two things on the orignal issue IMC Dodge L-700 Tilt Cab's box art:

1) Are three seats included? Hard to tell, but it looks like there are three separate seats.

2) Looks like the front wheels are six-spokes, not the five spoke Dayton wheels included with the kit. I would guess the box art is based on a factory ad or photo, so not too surprising the wheels don't match up.

Yes on the seats. The center seat is smaller.

The original kit I had the front wheels were the same as the latest issues!

Most pictures that I have found have the disc wheels on the L600 and the spoke style on the L700. I know at some point I saw a Dodge sales brochure that mentioned the wheels but I can't locate it now but I seem to remember them using Gunite spokes.

Can you post a pic of the part in question? My IMC kit has no part numbers anywhere, so maybe I could help if I saw the part.

Thanks for the reply Casey, 

I was unable to post the pic. I had a couple other Lindberg  L-700 trucks & it did not show the part in there instruction sheets . I just finished it without using that part.

Yeah, but I want that kit. I've never had it. Now, if they'd just give us the tanker.

My slightly modified 'shorty' version of the IMC trailer. Simple but nice for a little variety.....

Just noticed that this thread goes back pretty far......a different angle

I used half of one of those van trailers and put it on a stretched Dodge L700 chassis.
