This started out with the AITM Corbitt kit. I used a shortened Louisville Short Hauler chassis. The engine will be an approximate replica of a Continental 22R gas engine that was used in most of these trucks. I cut the hood open and stretched the cab for the sleeper. The gas tanks are made from PVC plastic pipe with styrene ends.
The '48 Corbitt is somewhat finished. I'm still finishing up the engine details, saving those for an article on converting an old Rolls Royce engine into a Continental gas truck engine. The deals came from the Revell '37 Ford panel truck kit, plus some from the big decal box. Wheels and tires came from Jamie at Mo'Luminum. Headlight buckets are from a Lindberg '32 Ford pickup, with lenses made from western shirt buttons. The yellow is from an old Walmart spray can. Believe it or not, everything else is brush painted. The black is Testor's Acryl, the rest is all done with craft paint.
