Dodge L-700 and.....a tractor!

Recommended Posts

Here's something different. I built this Lindberg Dodge L-700 tilt cab truck, lengthening the frame and making it a flatbed. It hauls a Porsche diesel Junior 108 tractor from Revell Germany. The truck was a bugger to build. Nothing fit, and flash everywhere. Old tooling, I think. Opening doors - forget it. Steerable wheels - forget it. The cab does tilt. The  bed is balsa and scored basswood siding. The tractor is a very nice kit. Easy assembly, good fit on all the parts. I added a go-kart from the AMT '60 Chevy pickup kit. The combination is a nod to the Nittany Antique Machinery show held near my home town. It represents a guy on his way to the show with his restored vehicles. It was a fun build, but frustrating at times, but hey, that's our hobby!

Nice job on this. I like the color choice & it's a good idea well executed. Got one of these but haven't figured out what I want to do with it.

I bought that truck kit at Ollie's Bargain Store about three years ago, and couldn't decide what to do with it. Then I found the tractor kit and the idea came together! It's neat how one model can inspire another build or diorama!
