Smokey and the Bandit Truck and Trailer Replica
 
hi guys and gals ..i know this truck has been done probably a million times in r/c now...:lol:.i decided to build one to add to my collection of famous trucks and trailers from the movies and TV.its based on the kinghauler chassis and the coffin bunk has been scratchbuilt and again the hood which was cut down to a short nose from Eric Oehme,the trailer is based on the tamiya van/box trailer .i set the suspension all the way to the rear,the custom mudflaps are from exclusive r/c ,rear trailer bumper scratchbuilt and painted by me .The sheet decals are from a gent over in the UK which you can find on e-bay .I tried to stay as true to the real truck even down to the scratchbuilt square small front bumper with the hood step in it ..hope you like it :)

Not sure what was up with some of the trucks in the movies back then running without at least rear 1/4 fenders...the same as the Blue Mule from White Line Fever ..:lol:

After just seeing smokey and the bandit in the movie theatre for its 40th anniversary special showing, I have always loved the movie but seeing it remastered was a life changing experience. And I can really appreciate this build even more now Dwayne.
