    Looks pretty fairly priced purchase to me. I've bought a few similar deals like yours. Paul

    Mack Quarry truck

    Saw this type of truck in photos a friend took while in Central Africa. Thought it would be a cool exercise in weathering and multiple color body panels. Apparently as long as they move any other item (like headlights) is a luxury. Paul Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki

    Road Boss Custom

    Ton of little touches. Air extractors on hood sides, molded grill shell, quad lights. On the cab I enlarged the rear glass, made custom ram air cleaner. Stretched the chassis and machined a set of air line fittings into the frame cover. Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki

    Western Star 4964

    Yes thats pretty much the way I do it too. I just get easily side tracked by an Autocar, Mack or Binder kit.

    Wal-Mart Navistar.

    Full wiring, and plumbing, added the AC compressor to the engine and add on air on the sleeper rear panel made from a Revell 1932 Ford Street Rod radiator and misc bits from the parts stash. Made up a GPS unit on the top of the rear panel. Made fender mirrors and converted to single stack. Stripped a lot of chrome for a fleet look. Decals are Modeltruckin.

  12. While the Bandag defiance is sitting for a month or so the let all the putty and filler dry and shrink I'm starting a GMC Tilt Cab Cruiser or Crackerbox. First thing is to start the distinctive " fish belly" chassis, The start of the cross members and air ride pads and rear trailing arm mounts..

    Thanks, I have the trailer set from him, but used the trailer to do a Hurst Lone Star.

    Lonestar and smoothy trailer

    Fantastic job. The color is an interesting hue. Looks brown and green to me, off sets the shiny parts well.

    why trucks?

    I agree on the trailers, but now that we moved to a new house and the kids are gone, I'm doing a dedicated display room. But I build semis, oil field units, vintage rails and vintage funnycars. All take up space.
