Lonestar tri axle wrecker- Harley Edition


Recommended Posts

Wow..Utica date sneakin up fast!! Tom- What ya have planned for the show? I'm sure it will be a fantastic truck like the Prostar

Thanks for the feedback, I'll get more pics loaded. Working out which fuel tank to use, noticed the 1-1 only has one tank mounted below passenger door! Guess the truck has big looks, but short legs! Lol.

Keep watching. .more coming!

ok, now while that dries..lets head over to the bed and add a few details! The rotator base plate had these funny "gumdrop" looking bolts around the perimeter. These certainly wont do..so I replaced them with bolt/washer details from Meng. Whoa !! Theres not a trace of welding on the trunnions for the boom...some stretched sprue later,a poke and prod w a knife tip, and a proper dowsing with glue, I had the welds I was after.

the next shots are the Harley Edition headlight buckets .,They turned out rather nice! I used Milliput epoxy putty for the bucket, then skinned them with .010 strip to create the raised area . A few touchups w green putty and its off to primer!

Do you have a link to where I can get those nut and bolts?

Seeing these pictures I wondered what kind of bolts the the kit actually represents. I didn´t bother when building my model. Now, here we go...

I don´t know of any manufacturer that would offer these inbus bolts in scale. The hexagonal Meng bolts look far better than the kit molds.
