I got to see this beautiful truck tonight. Brad brought it with him to the restoration rally. The detail is terrific. Great job!

Brad, I think this good practice for a full size one. I have been looking around for the truck, but they are few and far between. One will turn up for sure. I bet you could start a non profit and find a bunch of sponsors to help with the project. We are seeing a rebounding economy now and corporations are all going to be looking for ways just like this to get their name out there. This would be a fitting way to get Dale back on the road with the WBCCI.

How cool would that be!

Brad, do you think you could have a fully restored full-sized version ready to go in time for International? That way PeeWee and Frank could use it to haul Anna on the WDCU caravan!

Anyway, beautiful work on the replica. Like others, I literally did a double-take because it looked like the real thing, especially those outdoor shots!

Scale Scout Truck Update

Since its so blasted hot outside, I got back to work on the truck. It's sooo close to being done now that I'm working out in my mind how I want to make the base and display. I have a good idea of what I want its just getting it to come out the way I want it.

Anyway, here's a picture. Still have the passenger side mirror to do along with the front bumper. Then its putting it all together and onto the base.

Stay tuned...

Brad,

As the Scout Truck nears completion, the life is being put back into the original.

What a great effort.

Scout Truck Update

Ok, ok. The Scout Truck is complete. All that is left now is the display case. I've put together the glass part and just the base is left. I've a few ideas to really make the truck look right at home but am sidetracked on other projects at the moment.

Here's a few pictures of the completed truck.

Yes it did but getting a scale hose and sprayer was a challenge.

Stay tuned.
