Promoting Excellence in HO Scale Vehicle Modeling

1965 Diamond T 734 Refrigerated Truck - By Jim Groeneweg

Jim Groeneweg says this could very well be his first Diamond T model, at least the first one finished. The resin cab from Sylvan Scale Models is mounted on a Boley chassis riding on the wheels and tires from the kit with axles added to free roll. The front tires are Roco giving them a slightly smaller profile for better clearance in the wheel wells. Colors for the cab are Ford’s Willow green and GM brown gold metallic, clear coated using all auto paint. The body is a modified Walthers 35’ trailer that has been shortened to a scale 25’, wheel well inserts added along with a side door, painted in Alclad with Testors steel for the trim. A Sylvan vintage Thermo-King reefer was added to finish this one off.
