  1. I’d love to see the engine, take more pics when you get it home.
  2. Wow you’re a lucky guy! What a cool truck.

    1950 Ford F4 Wrecker

    Nice looking wrecker
  5. I took a couple pictures when I was putting the straps together
  6. Glad you like it. The tie-downs were one of the most tedious parts of the build, but they are cool. But, I can’t take full credit for those, they are from Czech Truck Model. CTM offers them in orange and yellow, and the photo etched ratchet goes together well, except the tiny styrene rods for the ratchet crossmembers supplied are too large to fit through the side holes, but you could just cut them to width and glue. I instead used smaller diameter rod and fit them through the holes. Minor issue. The strap material is easily wrapped around the parts and secured in place with a bit of CA. I placed tiny magnets on the ends and hidden underneath the car to make them removable to switch out the load in case I’m ever not in a Plymouth kind of mood.

    AMT KENWORTH Alaskan Hauler

    Excellent work, that’s a mean looking truck. The subtle weathering looks great, especially the road grime spraying up and back towards the sleeper.

    They are all great builds, but if I had to rank them, I’d put the Freightliner and tanker at the top. That one really catches the eye. The Pete looks nice with the auto carrier. Of course, the Charmin rig really captures the era and circumstances during which it was built. That one will serve as a representative time piece and conversation starter for years to come.

    Revell Peterbilt 359 Farm Truck

    Thanks guys! The missing/chipped hood paint is the plain white portion of a leftover decal, torn up. Simple and effective.

    1948 Sterling HC 175

    That’s coming together nicely. The finish looks great, it has a very period-correct sheen to it.
