Promoting Excellence in HO Scale Vehicle Modeling

1918 FWD Stakebed Truck - By Randy Sawyer

"Pretty swift!" Randy says about his scratchbuilt 1918 FWD stakebed truck. The prototype probably had a top speed of 10 to 12 M.P.H. Built in October of 2007, the 1/87 scale model represents many hours of labor and replaces a similar FWD Truck that was recently retired from the collection. The wheels were fashoined from Grandt Line's "O" scale push cart wheels that were modified considerably and with simulated solid rubber tires fashioned from Evergreen styrene tubing. The driver figure is a custom painted Presier figure.
