    These are from Wal-Mart under the Fresh Cherries brand.This is one of two.For those that aren't old enough to remember it is a 1974 AMC Gremlin.These are all HO (1/87) scale.

    The only change sofar aside from repainting it was to put Herpa wheels and tires on it.I'm pretty sure you can tell it, like the trucks above are works in progress.

    This one is about 10 years old I think.It has a Majorette cab (French toy company) with a chassis that is half Athearn and half Herpa.The wheels are Herpa also.

    [​IMG]

    This one is a Matchbox Mack C-600 if I remember corectly It has the wheels changed out and the graphics removed it is headed for thr garage for a complete rebuild along with its mate.

    [​IMG]

    This I think is a RoadChamps truck.I do know it is a Ford Aeromax .:D Except for the paint it is factory stock.

    [​IMG]

    Ok thats enough for this year.:D

    Josh,it's a Matchbox.It should be about 1/64 but I compared it to one of the Wal-Mart 1/87 semi tractors and it scales out pretty close being as it is a large IH ( I forgot the model designation) with a pickup box.

    I was going to buy one but it was the only thing I found worth buying and did not feel like standing in line for a less than a dollar purchase.A set of HERPA pr Promotec wheels would really spruce it up.

    I dont mind that the matchbox cars are a little out of scale. Yeah, they are bigger but if you watch what you buy you can really save a lot of money this way. :)

    Great looking vehicles everyone. Keep em comin!!:thumb:

    Just a suggestion, put your bigger scale vehicels closer to the front of the layout, and the scale vehicels towards the rear, things look bigger the closer they are to you. This will help bring it all together. :thumb:
