  1. Been about three years since I finished a semi tractor or heavy truck of any kind, so here's my triumphant return. I guess. I had the notion to build a hot rod shop truck, and kind of combined that idea with an AMT Autocar A64B. I started with an incomplete Stevens International kit I'd had laying around for several years. The engine is a Detroit V12 made from AMT and GW Trucks parts. The whole mess is lowered and sits on wheels from the infamous old Turnpiker Peterbilt 352, and the front tires are from a Revell Bill Signs 359. The rear tires, get this, are from the Revell Jeep CJ. Other than the height they're otherwise exactly the same as the 1:25 front floats. Same width, same tread and sidewall lettering, same I.D. even, just slightly taller overall. The single axle air suspension was made from spare parts and scratch built air bags. The headlights in this kit always looked dinky to me, so I replaced them with some lights from a Revell '32 Ford. The Haulaway trailer is pretty much box stock, aside from wheels and tires to match the tractor, and mud flaps cut from .020" styrene. The models on the trailer were all ones I had sitting around, and were built between about 2008 and 2020. Upper deck has a '76 Scout II, '53 F100, and '70 Ford Custom, while the lower deck carries a '75 Matador and '62 Impala.

    Beautiful model! I have the KFS cab in my stash but haven't built it yet. It intimidates me just a little bit. :D

    Weathered Autocar

    Looks like it just came off a muddy two track... but not too muddy. Can't wait to see it paried up with the dump trailer.

    Love that shade of green. The truck has a nice, purposeful look to it.

    Wish I had this much ambition! I've had a Crosley Farm-O-Road scratch build planned for years and I can't even be bothered to do that.

    Love it! I've always wanted to do something similar fitted with a flat bed.

    Glosson C-O 4070A

    Shaping up quite nicely. With that color scheme she'd look right at home in East Lansing.

    Love it! I still see these occasionally in use as farm trucks.

    I'll have to buy that cab now because my father has a 6x6 Reo out behind the barn.

    Damned shame that has to be covered up by a hood.

    I love it! I have those same decals somewhere.

    Love these trucks. You definitely did the subject justice.

    I must confess I bought way too many of these when they came out
