The New guys 1/24 scale Autocar Truck, Lowboy Trailer and Cat Escivator. The truck is a AMT kit that's highly modified, doors cut out and hinged, hood cut and hinged, frame fish-plated and a scratch built winch bed was added with some aftermarket parts thrown in. The trailer is scratch built except for the wheels and tires which came from three AMT dump trailer kits, The Cat excavator is scratch built except for parts from two AMT D-8 Caterpillar kits. The model was painted with Model Master Enamels and then weathered to give it a well used look. Model is fifty five inches long.
Here's it with the excavator sill being build and clean.

Great detail work!

The entire rig is 55 inches long and as you can see takes up most of the length of the 5 foot long table it's on.
