Franken-Freighter

Post by Antwon on Sun 17 Apr 2016, 12:23 pm

OK, I know you real trucker fellas are gonna think I've gone bonkers, but this was an exercise in chopping, channeling and  'Z'ing a frame on something big.
Started life as a glue bomb, and came back to life pretty much as I envisioned, low, dirty and different. I actually saw pics online of 1:1 vehicles like this and thought "Why not".
So much work in this one, it took me about 18 months overall. Engine is plumbed and wired, but I used a little artistic licence with hydraulic and air lines (feel free to tell what's wrong and what should go where, I've got others I want to detail)  I even ran airlines and fuel line to brakes and tanks, as this would all be seen.

Weird I know, but hell I like it anyway and I had a blast bringing it to life.

Comment away chaps.










Probably should take some better photos, but it won't fit in the shed! Anyway you guys get the Idea.
Thanks for looking.
