I've done one kit that doesnt deal with any military, no more... I work in a truck factory and thought i could scratchbuild the dumb body and all the things we add to the truck.

So is there a company who models frightliner trucks? kenworth? Or even a ford pickup could work, gmc also.

Heres what i liek ot build:http://www.mgohier.com/eng/frameset.html

referencre shouldnt be a problem, i see them all day long :-)

Thanks for any info folk, civiliad stuff isnt my strongest link

Revell and Italeri have 1/24 or 1/25 models of different trucks. It is a place to start anyway.

I like to model trucks, military or civilian, as with heavy equipment. Could you possibly think of doing a detailed walk around in pictures of some of the vehicles you have around you everyday??

Thanks in advance!

AMT/Ertl recently reissued their old truck models. A dump truck was among their line. I found one for sale at this website as well as other truck models: http://www.hobbyplace.com/italieri/trucks1.html

Here is a Western Star model at Greatmodels:



If I may be a bit nosy, what plant do you work at? I am a production supervisor for Freightliner in Portland, OR and have even made a visit to a sister plant in London, Ontario.
