Nice truck model! Can you provide us with some of the details, like was it - scratch built, resin cast cab, parts from other kits etc ? I have never had the patience to do that kind of detail work. Nice job. Stan 8)

the cab is resin cast, needed alot of work, it was in rough shape. frame and suspension came from a mack superliner kit,had to move the front axle back. it has a cummins in it. scratch built front bumper. fuel tanks were cut down to shorten them up, hand made back and vent windows. painted to match the brochure.

i spend all my time on the real trucks, but i remember in the old brockcaster magazines there were quite a few of these models in there. i wanted a model of my own so i made one. i have four more to build but am spending too much time on the ones i can actually ride in. thanks for the compliments stan and anthony.

thanks for all the feedback guys!! i had no idea when i posted it that it would draw so much attention. the cab was bought off ebay with a few others and i have no idea who made them. they were very rough. needed a lot of work to them.

My 761 cab came in the mail today from AITM. Great casting, very little clean up. I will have it painted by the weekend, but will probably be a year before I completely do the truck into the snowplow that used to plow my road as a kid in NY.

Why do I think I know you? Is that you Ryan?


It's not too obvious is it!! :D

Your red 761 dump trailer combo came out great. And compliments to Tyler on his as well.

I'll paint the cab in the next 2 weeks, but probably sit on it for about a year. I've got way too many projects going on!!

Go to http://www.aitruckmodels.com

Or straight here

You will need a donor kit for it. I plan to use the reissued AMT Paystar kit for the set back axle. If you need help, there are plenty of us here that I'm sure can help!

The photo of the Brockway plow is out my front window I took when I was around 10 years old. The rest are my cab that came in the mail yesterday. That cab will turn into that truck!
