Seen this advertised and I think it's cool and might be interested but wanted to ask here for opinions first.
It's up for £50. Is this a good price? Has some boxes and logs in the back.ImageImageImage

They are quite cheap new on Banggood or E-Bay and they upgrade well,
I bought a couple of 5th wheels from Will (WCP) and converted one into an articulated tractor that now tows a converted Bruder Low Loader.
It is easy and cheap and with a little work can be made either Russian or German or American,
If you get some Stencils from Rad you will bring it to life.

NAB!
Good evening. Get yourself a stock one and build it to your own specs as Jarndice suggests! ;o) There is a ton of great ideas and parts floating around to source from. Here is a pic of the same truck as above in Soviet Lend Lease livery towing an artillery piece. The original truck was manufactured by International Harvester and shipped to the Soviets who, after the War, used it as a template for some of their GAZ truck line.
regards,
Painless

Dont buy the secondhand (as everybody already said :D)

@Painlesswolf, that truck looks very cool with the correct rims on it :thumbup:

Did you only paint the wood, or replace it as I saw in a thread here?

I bought the same truck new on AliExpress, and I plan to 3D-print this cab for it.

Rob,
That CCKW file is only any good for very small scales, the polygon count is too low for 1/16
Cheers

These trucks are great and cheap and plentiful( i still have 20 in my attic lol)
If you are a modeller i would alwasy suggest you try and buy and then build your own, but i have to say Cat & I started out buying, modifying and selling these trucks to start with almost 3 years ago.
We then spent alot of time making 3D printed parts for these trucks. You can end up spending a fortune on them though! I have several trucks which now owe me more than £200 with all electrics and bits and pieces i bought in or made for them! You can then end up with a robust superb small scale truck.
Buying 2nd hand but new modified or built trucks can give you a cool truck, but also takes away from the enjoyment of building it yourself.

I tend to design alot of my vehicles now around trying to use as many parts as i can to keep costs low for the buyer, so the gears and axles and chassis rails are really useful, i just tend to throw the rest of the stuff in the box labelled 'maybe one day another rat rod' hahaha

a 3d printer or knowing someone with a 3d printer will mean you can really unlock the potential of these trucks ;)


go forward and enjoy

Jee!
I cut out the slats and replaced them and the bed\tailgate with wood. ( may have been my Build Thread for this truck that you saw...it is an easy way to add great detail to these trucks ;0) Now, on with NAB's thread!

Ah yes, that has to be your truck I have seen, very impressive.

In the mean time I found some cabs which you can easily download and print (if you have a printer of course)

Only didnt find the rims and tyres yet.

Or maybe you could cut the roof off and do a few extra mods to do this version that I'm currently working on myself, there's soooo many options :thumbup: viewtopic.php?f=209&t=31584&hilit=Lrdg+truck

I remember whe they first came out I ended up having 9ver 100 different wpl/jjrc/henglong/mz/eachine trucks in my spare room and spent months detailing and upgrading them and then selling them on.
