Mercedes Ramp Truck

Postby dge467 » Mon Apr 03, 2017 9:04 pm

The Tyco US-1 Trucking lost prototype Mercedes flatbed! Nope, just kidding! I guess I built this just to see if it could be done! It worked with a lot of modifications. It started off as a Hongwell static diecast. Well just the cab is diecast anyway, the rest of it is plastic including the grille and bumpers , bed ect.. I mounted it on a Tyco US-1 Trucking chassis that I had kicking around. I added a driver to the cab interior and glued the fuel and air tanks to the chassis. Kinda fun seeing it run around the track.

Hey, buddy -- I have to say that you did a terrific job on that conversion.
Looks great, and the worm drive US-1 trucking chassis will haul the weight, that's for sure.
Nicely done... Enjoy! -- Ernie :>)
