This one was origianlly built in 1985 and rebuilt in 2001 after being severely damaged. Used AIM Mack B75 cab conversion kit along with AIM Mack chassis. Wheels and tires are from parts box. Wrecker body and equipment were scratch built using Holmes 750 plans from mid-'70's Car Model magazine and upgrading the winches and booms to 850 specs. Parts box accessories added in rebuild. Color is Dupont white and Dupont lime on body, and Krylon cherry red on chassis, push bumper, and towing equipment.

Here is the link to the March & April 1973 article from Car Model Magazine: http://public.fotki....del/cm-1972-03/ using the Peterbilt wrecker body as the base. I build my own body instead of using the one from the Pete.

Because the 850 is a higher capacity unit, I modified the plans using reference photos from a couple of real Holmes 850's.

Thanks for all of the nic e comments.
