White 3000 series

Post by Gary Walker on Sun 21 Nov 2010, 9:37 pm

Hi again, here's a current project. Cab is from the Backyard shed.

This is how the cab came, but I wanted to build the extended sleeper cab version.


Firstly I filled in the guards & mocked up on the chassis. Guards were filled as cab is raised to accomadate V6 Detroit; chassis is amt Autocar.




Dissected cab & put back together.


Chassis painted, cab bogged-up.


Cab primered, fuel tanks & rear guards fitted.



Cab painted, exhaust & air cleaner fitted.

Okay, started on lines & scrolls, & have marker lights, airhorns & mirrors fitted. Have to completely rework interior tub as the one that came with the cab does'nt allow for an engine to be fitted; plus sleeper modification throws the bunk configuration out completely. More to come soon!

Thanks for the heads-up on the old White 3000. I'd almost forgotten about this truck. Saw one or two around in the 50's when I was a young boy. I really am enjoying watching this one progress - please keep on posting.

Cheers,
aus

This is new stuff from KFS thru Auslowe. I think Nigel did the designs & KFS do the printing. Nigel's wife, Renee can also print any company names or logo's in any colour to scale.

Just buy the later aerodyne issue and get a resin flat roof mate, pretty sure Andy at Scaleautomobilia in Grafton has the Aerodynes for around the $80-100 mark, look up scaleautomobilia.com. Think he's even got the resin roofs or Auslowe sells them. Wink
