HOME HARDWARE FREIGHTLINER FL 80 LUMBER TRUCK
« on: March 12, 2017, 11:42:57 PM »
This is an RMM of Germany resin casting of an FL 60 that has been upgraded to an FL 80. Wheel flares added to the casting

Finally making use of a HIAB crane that I have had for years, mocked up on the stretched chassis with a lift axle

A Lonestar lumber flat deck has been selected for the project

6 spoke flotation wheels tires persuade this to be an FL80

The only cab I know is by Merlau Modellbau, Germany. The website seems to be in German only. I couldn't find a solo daycab, but only as part of a rescue kit:

May be, you can find another on ebay.

That is where mine came from too Kurt, the rescue kit! I was able to get mine thru Tip Aiken (Truck Stop Models) back then and tried to get extras from RMM, never got back to me. I went and made a mold of mine -son Jamie wanted one- cast a few extras for my use.
