Hard to find models

Post by Dad's truck on Fri 30 May 2014, 9:18 pm

Hey modellers,

I have joined this site to see if anyone could help me. I am after a model of a White Road Commander to build up for my dad's 70th next year. My dad had a 1980 model, boggie drive, with a Silver 8V-92 T which we put in to replace the old green 92. We have a lot of memories travelling up and down the Hume HWY Melb tp Newcastle every school holidays. If anyone could help me out with any information as to where I can find a model of this particular truck I would greatly appreciate it.

I also have a Peterbuilt which I haven't finished building from quite a few years ago.

Hi mate. Welcome to the site. You'll have to watch eBay for the white road commanders. Conversion kits were made by Aussie resin models did one in 1/25 and kfs did one in 1/24. They will be hard to come across. Sounds like a cool project. The base kit for the 1/25 version is a Chevy Titan/gmc astro 95. Any generic italeri us truck will work for the 1-24 project. A range of engines, wheels and suspensions can be found at auslowe and melbourne model truck supplies.

You should finish your peterbilt as a practice before you tackle a project like the road commander. Trust me. These sort of projects test people. Cheers

Pm Flintstone on this site regarding the white road commander. I believe he owns aussie resin models. Cheers.

I think there were two series of the Road Commander so you'll need to check which one has been cast. I think KFS did the latter one. I'd also be keen on one especially the first version. I agree with Ben, get your hand back in on the Pete first. Good luck and don't forget to post some pics.
