    GMC Topkick Rollback with 64 1 ton GMC

    Nice set! I believe this is in the "Forum Finds" section of the latest issue of MCM.

    Green one is O2 and the red one is acetylene.

    1944 Diamond T 6x6 4 Ton Wrecker

    Wow -- just wonderful.. My eye is drawn to all the tiny details -- the tools, the cables, the fittings, all that. Love the little red and green caps on the bottles. It's fun how the smallest and most ordinary colors stand out against the olive drab panels. Johnny

    Nothing short of a museum-quality build. I’ve enjoyed watching the project come together. You are expertly committed to your craft.

    1944 Diamond T 6x6 4 Ton Wrecker

    This 1/25 scale Diamond T Wrecker was built using information from a Squadron Walk Around Photo book and TM-811 which is the US Army technical manual for the 4 Ton Trucks. It carried the designation of 969A with the army. It was built from a combination of brass, plastic, Renshape, resin castings, brass wire, aluminum foil, two ply facial tissue for the top and assundry pins and wire. Metallic embroidery thread was used for the winch cables. Decals are computer generated and ALPS printed.

    CF air tanks

    A good source of tubing that size is a hardware store that carries plumbing supplies. Brian is right. Cut it to length and then glue on some sheet plastic to the ends. Stack up 2-3 pieces so that you can bevel the ends by sanding.

    CF Freightliner pusher truck

    Sorry for the late response, I haven't been around for a while. Life has been busy. I don't remember the paint color. I'm pretty sure that I used Duplicolor in a spray can though. The stripes are decals from the kit. The air tank came from the AMT R-Model Mack. The 2 hole Budds came from Double Take Replicas, sadly they are no longer in business. Jamie at moluminum.com offers excellent 2 hole Budds though. I did convert it from 4 headlights to 2 headlights. If you have any more questions let me know.

    Ford LT9000 Dump Papco

    Thanks guys!!! Thanks Charles! The aluminum is just a little heavier gauge than those aluminum throw away pans that you get at the grocery store. I've used for several things, including a leak in my roof.

    CF air tanks

    I used the air tank off of the AMT R-Model Mack on my CF truck for the tank behind the cab. End caps can be made from stacking flat styrene, then sanding it down to the shape that you want. Sorry to take so long to answer. I haven't been on in a while.

    Searching for C6500 resin kit

    Resin Motor Ranch has them. They show "out of stock", but I am told that if you contact them that they will fix you up.

    Searching for C6500 resin kit

    I have reached out to them several times, they either do not answer, or do, saying they will check then I hear nothing. I would simply like to purchase 3 of their Chevy/GMC 6500 cabs. I hope they have these back in stock soon.

    1944 Diamond T 6x6

    A lot more has been completed. The booms are done and mounted but not permanently. Still a lot of little things to do on them before setting them in place for good. Winches need to be supplied with cable. The lifting cable on one side has been done to see how it works. It raises and lowers easily. The first photo shows the booms in place with a temporary cable for fitting purposes. In the bottom photo the boom on the left is now self supported. Similar cables will be added to the right side.

    1944 Diamond T 6x6

    Here's a look at where we are today. The wrecker frame is done except for the pulleys on the upper left. Got them still to make. Then it's on to the boom construction. The air compressor will go under the spare tire.
