Promoting Excellence in HO Scale Vehicle Modeling

Bantam Backhoe - By Carter Brown

Carter Brown sent us this trackside view of a Bantam backhoe along with a trusty UP pickup. The Bantam started with a L’ltl Toy Gradall. The carrier was narrowed by taking several slices out. The backhoe is from a Woodland Scenics kit. They use soft metal castings so a lot of metal was removed to make it look like a Bantam. The 1956 Ford F-350 MOW truck is based on a CMW model.
