Ford Aeromax Truck Tractor - By Ron Elsdoerfer

Ron Elsdoerfer built this Ford Aeromax tractor from a Road Champs die-cast model. He trimmed the cast mirrors and subsequently replaced them with some etched after market parts. After painting, he applied Real Metal foil to the grilles and bumpers, added horns, and detail paint along with a little weathering. This model also received home made decals, a driver, and "sexy" bus wheels from a Herpa set. Ron notes the Aeromax was always his favorite long haul tractor.
