Promoting Excellence in HO Scale Vehicle Modeling

Cape Rail Ford F-350 MOW Truck - By Patrick LaForge

Patrick LaForge detailed a River point Station F350 with River Point tool box, ladder racks, and ladder. The truck has had a "bed liner" sprayed in and 10' foot PVC pipes on the racks made of aluminium tube. A strobe light was added along with DOT tape and three radio antennas made of paint brush bristles. Scale license plates have also been added along with several acrylics washes to the wheels to simulate brake dust and dirt. The body lines have had a wash added to simulate depth. Lastly some light chalk dustings were added for highlights. The truck is for the MOW crew of Patrick's Cape Rail model railroad layout located on Cape Cod, Mass.
