Promoting Excellence in HO Scale Vehicle Modeling

1950 Ford Tow Truck - By David Honickle

One very special treat while attending the recent International Hobby & Model Expo in Chicago was getting to see Dave Honickle again and some of his fantastic new models. Frankly, this photo just doesn't do this model justice! Dave started with a Classic Metal Works die-cast 1950 Ford pickup and cut open the hood and driver's door! The flathead six's cylinder head can be seen sitting on the driver's side front fender. The engine bay is completely detailed with the engine block showing the piston tops, head gasket, and all wiring and hoses! That's the battery sitting on the passenger side front fender. The bed is filled with detailed "junk" such as old and extra parts that look like they might fit this old soldier! The wrecker boom was scratchbuilt.
