Mini cow chow freightshaker 1/87

Recommended Posts

Phone blipped & lost a lot of the early build pics on this one. 

Started with an athearn ho 1/87 scale Freightshaker coe.

Opened the drivers door which will be hinged with. 0.014 tubing with 0.007 wire to mount it to the body or vice versa. 

Alloy forms roof airfoil,  many Plano PE parts going into this mini beast, scratched frame, scratched axles and suspension, Ratcliffe resin Driptroit 8V71 with Fuller lone ranger transmission hehehehehe, and a whole bunch of other scratched and PE parts.

And Napa provided genuine Driptroit alpine green

Well got some trailer work done the slider & reefer are by A-line and the slider functions.

Also cored out the reefer exhaust with a #80 drill bit 

Painted 3 wobblies red and a replacement grey wobbly. 

Still a ways to go  but made a little progress. 

Also got my Detroit 8V71 and my crackerbox inline Jimmy painted in Detroit alpine green. 

Getting there more to come over the next several weeks.
