Ford LTS-9000 Concrete Mixer - By Jim Groeneweg

This concrete mixer is based on a Lee Town Ford LTS-9000. The cab/hood was used straight out of the box. The frame is scratch built and the suspension is from Herpa's trailer kits, modified to fit the frame. The concrete mixer body is from Wiking with rear fenders changed to accommodate the 60" axle spacing. Rear wheels are modified Herpa six spoke with Lindberg tires; the front are Herpa and the flotation type tires are made up of two Athearn tires. Paint is Testors gray and custom mix green for the cab.
