Promoting Excellence in HO Scale Vehicle Modeling

Ford F-600 Trucks - By Karl Erk

Here's a pair of Ford F-600 trucks built from Lindberg "Hi Rollers" snap kits. The model on the right was built stright from the box and Karl's modified truck is on the left. The box body was cut in half and stake sides built up from stripwood. A lift gate was built from one of the box doors and some of the kit's sprues. Mirrors are from .020" wire and card stock. Welding tanks, barrels, drums, spikes, and chain came out of Karl's junk box. Decals are from a Micro-Scale "N" scale set. This model was built in the mid-to-late '70s and was featured in the August 1978 issue of PROTOTYPE MODELER magazine.
