Request For Photos ... Any 1:1 Photos Of The Dodge L-700

13 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

I'm new to truck modeling. I built my first a few months back. I have started my next truck project. The Lindberg Dodge L-700 as a car transport for all my hemi 'cuda models and I have had very little luck with the usual on line searches. I would really like photos of the engine and bay areas but I could use anything.

Thanks,

jefbo

Hi, I` am from Germany and I have many pics of the L-700. I am not so firm with the english language, please can you tell me what do you mean with the bay area? I will send you the pics if I know what it is.

Hi Marco,

He's talking about the engine compartment area, or engine "bay". :P Of course on the L-700, the engine and surrounding parts are pretty much exposed once the cab is tilted over.

I'd like some pics also.......I have an old builtup I won on eBay a few years ago, and it's begging for a restoration! :unsure:

Yes, any pics would be helpful for building these kits. I've never seen one of these in 1:1.

Thanks, any photos are a big help. The photos I desire the most however are the one that show the details, such as interior, engine, hoses & lines etc.

I very much enjoyed seeing your L-700. If I came across one on the street, I suspect it would be a dead on match to your build. Because of the lack of reference material, I decided to go the custom rout. I will post the progress photos in the Model Trucks Forum.

Thanks, I will put them to good use. I decided to use the 361-ci engine that came with the kit, just dress it up a little. I'll post the progress soon. I'm not familiar with the motor at all. I want to wire and run hoses and I don't have a clue to where half the stuff goes.

In my search for photo on the net, the one thing I have found a lot of is other modelers asking if anyone has photos of this dodge. So if you have more photos...:lol: please post.

a big THANKS!,

Jefbo

Hi Jefbo,

in Moment I`am working on 4 Modeltrucks at the same Time. There are a Diamond Reo short Nose, a Peterbilt 352 Milne Daycab, a Ford

Prototype Truck (very interesting because it`s like the Dodge L700) and last not least the L700. I hope I can finish these projects the next time,

because I have so many new Ideas (in Moment I have ca. 150 Trucks in Scale 1:24/1:25 , 1800 in Scale 1:87, 5 in Scale 1:16 and many others

in different Scales. Here in Germany there live many "Modeltruckfreaks".

Happy new year

Marco

PS: The 2 first new pictures are canadian Fargo Trucks!!!
