Vintage Semi Truck.

Post by whodathunkit » Sun Apr 08, 2018 3:52 pm

It's been awhile since i'v posted anything..So with that said !

Has anyone ever tried building a vintage looking semi..
Using the vintage pinewood derby wheels & 6 penny finish nails for axles ?

Thought Id try doing something a little different and play around with the idea of making one .

What I'v came up with the truck so far as it's trailer is still a work in progress..
And a first for trying out the air brush to make the truck look road used!

Thank's Vitamin K !
I enjoy reading over some of thing's you've posted on different topic's.. Good stuff!!!

Well work go's on for the car hauling trailer..
I really wanted to stick the vintage trailer look as well.. but with a twist and incorporate some flames in to it ! ( hope it looks okay?)
Still have to come up with a paint scheme for it .. could use some ideas.
Thought about painting the Boy's Life Logo on the lower half of the trailer.. but don't know if it will be to much ? (ideas welcome!)


Anyhow what it looks like now with the trailer build started.. all together with the cab it's length is 17- 1/2 inches and 3- 3/8 wide.
