Promoting Excellence in HO Scale Vehicle Modeling

Freightliner WFT6342 & 27' Doubles - By Gary Smith

2003 National Convention Winner - Oldest Model Award

This model built in 1976 by Gary Smith demonstrates both the heritage of our current day modeling and just how far we've come in almost thirty years! Gary cut down a then almost new Athearn Freightliner to a 63" cab length, shortened the truck frame, and installed a Walthers air deflector shield on the roof. The 27' pup trailers are cut down Athearn 40 footers.
