Promoting Excellence in HO Scale Vehicle Modeling

Ford F-8000 Service Truck - By Andy Epperly

This Ford F-8000 service truck started life as a Matchbox utility truck toy. Some creative cutting with a bandsaw and a Dremel tool started the project. Addition of scale wheels, tires, and a crane from Herpa, a rotary beacon from Details West, and a new paint job and some chalk weathering yielded this terrific looking model!
