Alaskan Hauler(ish)

Recommended Posts

Next build is going to be a highly modified Alaskan Hauler.   I'm building this for the YouTube 2024 Big Rig Group Build.    I  plan on this being a rig that has been well maintained and upgraded thru the years, but now a show rig.



Kit engine is built up and primed so I can see where more work is needed.  Don't know what the deal is with this particular white AMT molded this in, but it's hard to see the seams.



Basic frame is together, this will soon be stretched.

Score!    --- Nice kit, also excellent door signs!

I remember Hill&Hill from back in the day. They had two terminals: Houston, Texas and Casper, Wyoming. They ran pipe and stem and drilling machinery from the Port of Houston to all points in the northern US, Canada, and Alaska. They had a whole fleet of those company trucks painted that particular shade of green.

I never drove for them, but they had the rep of being a good outfit to work for, with super good equipment -- as long as you didn't need to be home every weekend 😎

I have the factory suspension and axles on.  There's no rear cross member yet as I plan to fab one better than the kit.  The engine is just sitting in place right now.brgb6.thumb.jpg.1f53eeb9fe5a63bec95c5e4aedc5f635.jpg


Brake chamber have yet to be added as I plan to upgrade them and include spring brakes on both axles.


The initial run of my upgrade parts.   Each one needs a slight amount of adjustments before the final print is made.
