Late 1950's truck stop,,,
« on: March 08, 2014, 07:10:57 AM »
Here's two trucks from the 1950's that I reworked a little. The GMC started as a "Kims Classic" wrecker and it's pulling a Speccast lowboy that might be a little light for the load. The Mack L is a Corgi that I dechromed a bit. Corgi made some nice models but they had chrome on them than typically seen on fleet trucks.

Just happened on this here, obviously missed it when you posted, I like both those models, favoring the GMC a little more, they look well done. I'm not familiar with this scale but just thought they are nice!!

Thanks for digging this old post up Jim.
I must have missed it too.

Dick Capello:
Shouldn't your GMC have a car haul trailer?
Maybe it does by this time.
Any updates to these models?

Rob (if you're still here), The gmc is in FJ Boutell colors and I do have a car trailer for it. These are 1/48-1/50.

Yes, I'm still here.
Thanks for returning and posting your pictures and information.
I will correct the title on your POTM later.
You forgot the last ZED in Zavitz.
