Are there any Truck modellers in the house?


Recommended Posts

Hi all, just wondering if there are any truck or even tractor modellers here?

Guideline have two new magazines in the fold and we are looking for contributors. Think me as a short, slightly - OK rather chubby, recruiting Sergeant! :)

cheers

Yep, and I’ve written for truck model world lots, and did the news and some reviews for them. Think someone from guideline has called me already 

Hi Rich - thanks for replying. That would be Colin I assume. 

cheers

Hi - yes, I build trucks now and then, all sorts, the subject and scale varies. 

 

I recently finished this Peterbilt 348 4x4 service truck.  The cab is from a 359 kit, and most of the rest scratchbuilt (including the hood, fenders, and service bed and so on), and some nice parts from KFS (chassis kit, front axle, and tires/wheels).  It's a recent enough build that I still like it!

This is a 1/35 KRAZ, the pile driver bed is scratch built:

This is 1/25 - I think it's the Revell suburban, converted to a beat up 4x4:

This is a Kinetic (as I recall?) 1/35 - was the Navistar MRAP converted to the recovery version - lots of modifications to the cab, scratchbuilt bed and RPG net:

Eventually I'm going to build a Peterbilt 365 6x6.  This will start with a 378 cab, and like the red one, get new fenders, hood, suspension etc - and not sure about what to put in the bed just yet.  

 

Cheers

Nick
