    KevinKrey- nice snow scenes! I take it you will be primarily modeling winter w/ lots of snow and ice? If so, you may want to look into geting some railplows.

    Does anybody know where I can get door handles, like the ones on toolboxes on trucks, Im sure I have seen scratch built trucks with them before, but maybe Im just crazy. But then again, you can buy almost anything, I just dont want to search like that in my walthers catolog, and the walthers website search had nothing.​

    Roco Russian WW2 truck

    This truck is from a Russian manufacturer, and is available from Roco. I have four of these to do up for a friend who is helping me with module framework and wiring...

    While it is a model of a circa WW2 Russian military vehicle, it is a nice stand-in for circa 1920s North American trucks.

    Basic black paint is Testors Engine Black on top, and Grimy Black underneath. Weathering is done with brown and tan craft paints, and the mirror and headlights are also craft paint (silver).

    The truck comes as you see it in the last two pictures, along with a little bag of details to add - exhaust, driveshaft, window glass, and headlights. The Cab comes off, and the steering wheel is removable if you want to add interior detail or a driver. The only "after market" additions are the mirror (0.015 wire and a bit of sprue) and the barrel in the back (also scratchbuilt from 1/4" dowel and wine bottle foil ;)).

    BNSF truck I made with some stickers. Great truck, it even comes with the ability to be put on the rails if you want to keep that attached to the truck.
