Atkinson 4870

Post by Gary Walker on Mon 03 Jan 2011, 8:17 pm

Hi Guys, started another one, couldn't help myself! Frame rails are from a Paystar along with the front springs, Italeri air-bag, diffs from a GMC General. Aircleaner/exhaust gantry is a combination of K100 Kenworth & 'bits', filters & air-tanks from Italeri Renalt Magnum. Battery box is modified 4200 Transtar, air-cleaners are modified W900 Kenworth (revell), & air-cleaner brackets are Transtar cabover battery boxes. Rear cab mounts made from evergreen sheet & transtar parts, gear shift tower from a K100 Kenny. Wheels & fuel tanks from Auslowe & cab from Back Yard Shed. Thanks for looking.
P.S Thanks Scummy for the reference pic's.

G'day Allen, here's a pic of wheels, rear on the left, steer on the right. They're 1/24 scale, mounted with tyre's from Italeri. Wheels are Auselowe, sorry don't have the part No., but they would be listed in Auslowe catalogue. Can anyone shed some light? Scummy, Rob Burns? Cheers, Gary.
