I started this one with a 30 yr old build of a KW cabover tractor, dropped on the beginnings of a scratch built wrecker body to see what it would look like.


I recently got a couple of the AMT wrecker beds in a trade and I have been fitting one of those instead. I had to shorten the bed and modify the boom. Test fit.



More to come.

I like where you are going with this one. The AMT wrecker bed really fits the bill. Looking forward to seeing more.

The 30 yr old Testors glue ain't what it used to be! The more I work on this the more I have to rebuild. Put one piece on - two fall off :cry:

Heepey, this truck is going to look awesome! Yeah, things might fall off but that means you might be able to disassemble it a li'l bit and freshen things up. Don't give up! It's looking great! Can't wait to see more on this spectacular build. 8)

Too many started projects! I have been making a little progress on this one, years in the making. Added some scratch built lift cylinders and some modified winches.
