Project #26: B-Train Grain Trailers

Project #25: Century Class Motor Coach



   This is a little model I put together just to have something different in the fleet. It has a few ruff spots here and there, but I'll leave it as it is. It 'did' come out looking like a motor coach surprisingly. Before I added the paint and chrome it looked more like a U-Haul. *lol*

Project #24: Drop Deck Trailer



Here's a drop deck trailer that came out pretty good. I painted the top silver, while the chassis black. Also added a few tool boxes on the side just like some of the drop decks I see on the road.. Aluminum foil makes nice shiny chorme for the boxes if it's smooth enough.

Project #22 & #23: Skirtless RC Mack Vision and Double Trailers



The Mack Vision was the first truck I collected in 1/32 scale, and I finially made it radio controlled. I took off the skirt and added a few stripes along the sides. The 'JD' stands for Jasper Distributors.

I added headlights to it as well with blue step lights under both the driver and passenger door.

These are a set of pup trailers I made for my personal company, van Goff Enterprises. The front pup trailer is a dry van, while the other is a reefer. They were made by strong cardboard basicly, and can support the weight of a bowling ball. Small nails were also used to support the frame and lock the doors.

Truck Station



   Being both sick and near bored something like this was bound to happen. Paying more attention to my room I got tired of having my collection of models placed on the floor in the open; lined up against the wall. It looked fine at first, though later it started to look too plain and junky to me. This way it looks neater, yet more interesting; and making power lines added a more realsitc flavor to the scene I was going for - a station. The lights are controlled by a railroad transformer that's plugged into the wall; while electricity flows from it to the cables. It is safe the way I built it. The lights can be adjusted as dim or as bright as I want, and can stay on all night and day if I wanted them to. Best part is in the end the station hardly took up much space.

New Paint Job



   This is the same rc Freightliner Classic XL I posted a while back; though today I wanted to give it another look. The paint is a bit ruff imo; because it turned out to be a different type of paint than I thought it was. It still looks good, and I might find a way to repaint it later. I also added a wing to the hood of the truck.

Three Shades of Blue



   I gave my RC model of the Freightliner Columbia day cab some skin and a name. After thinking of a name and design, I came up with P. F. Lucille Motor Freight The Royal Expedite. The name Lucille came from a pet ferret I once had. http://images.sable-pro.net/diecast-creations/pflmf-intro.jpg With the cab, I removed the sleeper, cut the chassis, gave it horns, an exhaust pipe, realistic working antenna, working headlights, tank fenders; and a new motor.
