Promoting Excellence in HO Scale Vehicle Modeling

Yellow Freight GMC 5500 - By Thomas Lange

This model from Thomas Lange of Germany represents a GMC 5500 from the early '60s. The original model was a Matchbox die-cast 2 axle dump truck with a tilt cab. Thomas closed the rough hole of the tilt cab and fitted it on an Athearn Ford C tractor chassis. He added an interior and new clear windows. The wedge trailer is A-Line's excellent Pines FRP 28' pup.
