Ol' Blue

11 posts in this topic

Posted (edited) · Report post

Built this one about 9 months ago..It started as the old Black Magic 359 from Revell....I had built a metal flake pewter colored one like this that I sold on e'bay...As I was kind of missing it, I decided to build another one....This one took a coat of "true blue" paint from Krylon and some decals I had from other trucks..Furthermore, it has a Freightliner sleeper from Italeri... I aquired this model without the sleeper, so I had to improvise....The end result, after bashing the AMT tow body (Taking another page out Tim A's book, I narrowed it and angled the side panels) and some parts from the Italeri Bro body, was this, completely ficticious wrecker, I call Ol' Blue...

I don't know enough about it to know that it was fictitious. But I DO know it looks really sweet. I like the chains in the back too, that's too cool.

Honestly, I never liked that Tow body, but with this Revell Pete and your mods, it works. Looks real nice.
