Light duty KW W900 single drive wrecker...

Recommended Posts

I like trucks that "work' for a living. Oil field equipment, dump trucks, cement mixers, wreckers, etc. Not dissing on road trucks/semis but I can only build so many KW/Pete road trucks and then I get bored. The field is wide open for the 'working trucks' and scratch building bodies and frames is very enjoyable to me.

Great job on that. Unique for sure, as far as scale models are concerned. Is the body and fully scratch built or did you use some modified kit parts?

I built this model entirely from left over parts from my spare parts totes, with a lot of scratch building involved. Even the KW hood and body were left overs from a KW I scrounged for parts for other builds. The wrecker unit itself began life as an Italeri US wrecker kit featuring the Western Star. I modified it to include an extendable boom similar to the real-life Miller Industries Vulcan series of wreckers. The wrecker body itself came from the AMT race car hauler kit with some modifications.
