I just got information about the scale model of Smokin' Forty-five.
Jaydeez is planning to produce the truck, but can't produce the belly dumps yet... they plan to put a stepdeck behind it. That's what this truck pulls in the winter when gravel is slow, it hauls steel. No one knows WHEN this will be done though, I think I'm going to contact Jaydeez now. :-D

Hey, great!! So it will be a DCP model after all, then? Very, very cool! Looking forward to this, even without the belly dumps! But I am sure that someone somewhere has made, or will be able to make, custom belly dumps for ya...  :roll: :-D

THey are pretty exspensive if you want the ones pictured in your sig but for a regular 3 axle bellydump, youcan get for about$50 painted.

Have you seen a set like the ones in my signature?

Ouch, so any ten-axle train would have to be custom or using trailers and dollies from different sets... besides, it's still not the pretty, shiny kind. :-P

If you were handy in any way with a razor saw and exacto knife, the silver Beall belly dumps woulndn't be too hard to make out of sheet styrene and various slices of pvc tube. If you want one that bad its worth a try, isn't it?
