  1. Thanks for the complement. I will have to look to see what paint I used. I think it was a Krylon color.
  2. Thanks for the complement Peter. I need to revisit this build and finish it.
  3. Dump bed has been mounted now to add a few more details
  4. Getting some work done on the truck. I’ve upgraded the engine to a 350 instead of a 250
  5. This is a old AMT Autocar DC I’ve had for about 16yrs always undecided what till make till last winter. I decided to make it a Dump truck. I took my brother Bill’s old bed he gave me back around 1986 and re-do it. Bill bought a new AMT Autocar Dump Truck when it first came out in 1972. He painted the neighbors fence to buy it of course I helped I was 3yrs old. The cab shied and front was bad so I replaced it with a Ertl one I had. Here’s some pics of the bed and truck in progress. 
  6. Jeff no I don’t mind glad you found it sorry if we high jacked your thread Ron
  7. Yes Jeff that’s me driving my brothers Kenworth I was raised on those old Detroit’s
  8. I bought this kit off EBay about 2 yrs ago and this kit brings back a lot of memories to me. I think it was Christmas of 1979 Mom and Dad got this kit for me and my brother Bill got me the GMC General the same Christmas I have a pic of them some where that my mom took of them when I finished them. They were my first model trucks.That was 40yrs ago so I thought I would build one for the Anniversary of this first model truck I got. I will be adding some spoke wheels and a tarp and a headache rack to this build. Hope you will follow along.
  9. Here’s one I finished last summer. The frame in the kit was a “Rubber Block” suspension So I used a Monogram Ford aeromax frame with air suspension instead. I also added other parts. Enjoy the pics
  10. Ron. Wow!! What a great build at the moment I’m building some 1/25 trucks also I might post one. Here my brothers 1967 Kenworth he and dad restored and I helped a little. I can’t link the video from YouTube but if you go out and search 1967 Kenworth 318 Detroit you’ll see me driving my brothers truck. Great progress so far keep it going
  11. Thanks for the complement Guys and the pics good reference material
  12. Worked on the bed last night. I removed the top sides and sand it down and added the tail gate and gave it a test fit now for some paint

  15. Jeff. Thanks for the complement. I actually started drivIng for my dad when I was 18 I wasn’t old enough to go out of state yet. I hand painted the wheels with Tamiya NATO black I never use any mask I’ve always free handed my wheels. Hope to get the bed going next

  17. Here’s another update. Tires are painted and put on
  18. Back in 1990 when I started my Trucking career I use to see these trucks all the time on the Interstates and the Railroads on Flatcars. I never cared to much for this truck until about 10 years ago when I started taking a closer look at these beasts. Now I’m hooked on them. This is my first “Modern” Millitary Model I’ve built. I bought this off of eBay and it was missing the instructions, shelter building, and the cab top. I now have 5 of these in the stash now if this build goes well I plan on building more.
  19. Thanks guys it was a lot of fun for me too and thanks for the compliments
  20. I removed the slats after finding out thy were the bench seats folded up so I glued the seats that came with the kit and removed some pin marks
  21. #1 This is one of my favorite 1/48 builds. I built this about 2yrs ago using a Tamiya Opel Blitz and a Ace flak gun.
