One day before the dreaded 120 day Warning!! Good thing I went back on this project!!

I decided to go with the Wiking tires along with modified Sylvan spoke wheels, this is the result along with the deck painted up. I also added an extra frame mounted modified fuel tanks from Herpa

120 day warning?

Yeah, if you go into replying or adding to the  topic that has not been updated in 120 days, the big "warning, this topic has not been active in 120 days, are you sure you don't want to open a new topic?" That warning......no big deal really, just something I seem to chuckle over when it happens.

The Loadstar is finished up here, windshield installed and interior in, photo-etched mirrors from a Sylvan kit

a look at the LH side, I noticed in most of my info that they do not have clearance lights on th eroof on earlier versions, no idea why but decided no lights is OK

the RH side, should have added exhaust pipe to it, oops!

a view from the back and this one is off and running

Pictures.... 1 to 1 scale truck
I found these in my 2013 Archives.
A building supply company had this parked out front for a while.
Too late now but posted for interest's sake.


Note the clearance lights.

Awesome contribution Rob,fits the bill quite well! I did take note of the clearance lights, only 1 per side, interesting! I may have to add a pair.

Is that an Idaho license pate up front?

I still remember just how common the Loadstars were:

Found a dump truck sitting at a garage in East Earl PA on 2-26-18. Rob is spot on in his statement about how common Loadstars were.....in New Jersey they were as thick as flies. ;D I drove a straight truck for a beer distributor while in college circa 1966-1967.

Yes, they were very common for sure, great pictures on both accounts! The activity in that rail scene is amazing, there is a GMC General  with a bunk riding beside the train too, a pic you could study for quite some time and find new details!! Very cool! I never spent much time in Hamilton, just came in off the QEW to Stelco and to Dofasco, right back out after loading.
