Lonestar tri axle wrecker- Harley Edition

Recommended Posts

Very nice paint and details on that truck. I am surprised that there aren't many of them in the 1:1 world, or at least here in the Carolinas.

I'm glad everyone liked the build, That's what modeling is all about..enjoying the build!

I hear a few other custom parts are being worked on, time will tell. Our hobby thrives on the interest of unique and different truck parts. Taking a plain kit and turning it into something different that each modeler envisions is important to the hobby.

Thank you to everyone that posts their unique projects on here for everyone to learn and improve their own builds, your all very talented.

Mike- I'm not surprised theres not many of these 1-1 around, while searching for images, I read this package raises the price of a typical lonestar 10- 15 thousand ! !! Hopefully our fellow truck modelers spots one eventually on the road.

finished !!! I had a great time altering the kit visor, the ribs had to be scribed . Ended up a tad crooked, but sometimes we gotta move on. thanks for all the comments along the way..on to the next build..something a little more unique thats gonna cement some new skills ! I'll be sure to share the build along the way

Thanks Tom !! I missed finishing this by the show..finally had enough snow to reach the 500 mile goal this season, then went flying by it ..yikes, almost 850 this year.Gotta love 4 strokes, no smoke, and run 4 -ever

You'll put those parts to great use ! They fit perfectly in the kit spots..kinda like I planned it that way !

Be sure to post plenty of pics when you start it!

I saw one in Newark. Ca, last week but no chance for a pic, both rolling opposite directions. Great looking build I like the old school look of the lone star, to bad you missed a show. Bet it would have done well.
