Little big truck. 1/87 Scale.

Post by Beno on Wed 30 Jun 2010, 2:52 pm

A bit of a side project while I'm on a weeks holiday. It's a diecast Western Star left hand drive prime mover, which came with a 2 axle trailer. I got it and the conversion parts from dv8v8, It's HO railway scale but I think it pretty cool. I got the container/trailer from a shop, and it just happened to be the same type as the other trailers I got. Dv8v8 sold me some resin tarped loads for the back 2 trailer frames, driver and steering wheel to so I could change it to right hand drive, the dolleys, ringfeeders, extra wheels and axles, tool boxes, bullbar and a resin grill which had far more detail then the original one.

It's not finished yet, still have to paint more lights, and put signage on it, but I'm pretty happy with how it's coming along.











Thanks for looking,

Ben.

You'll have ask Dv8v8 that posted after i did, I got from him. He did tell me but I can't remember. He buys them on the internet from overseas. Your Benz looks cool too.
