Default Re: 1930s dumptruck - Nylint

I know right! I like those 180 can motors...
Not sure what I'll do with them though, I want to do a Bruder Gator and some other small stuff
I also got a couple of these

Might work in the gator or maybe the Bruder 906 loader... who knows...

That's a cool transaxle part too.
I haven't seen the Bruder gator yet. I'd been thinking if i started messing with converting my Ertl 'deere gator' that i'd probably just do the rear axle as a piece of C-channel holding a pair of n20 gearmotors. Should be enough to drive around the farm or construction sites.
I've also wondered about the "CXD D12" (1/16 scale version of "wpl D12" Kei truck) as a possible donor for small projects

Since i'm more thinking about Old Trucks in this thread, got any ideas about possible donors close to either a 1928 or 1934 Diamond-T truck cab? (Very distant project ideas)

I've been kind of watching for something like that too..
I've seen some older Buddy L's but they are either super rough, REALLY rough or way to expensive.
If they are missing parts like the grill, or cab, or headlight buckets good luck finding them
I have found STL files for older trucks like that, most would have to be scaled up though. 3D printed would be a lot of work to finish...

I kinda guessed that there probably wasn't much close to those in a scale that fits with RC Trucking. It ceriainly wasn't a common brand...

Sanding 3D printed Curvy Fenders does sound like a whole lot of fun.
I'd thought about possibly using the front of one of these Nylints to make something 'kinda close' to the 1928. Or parts of a King hauler might be a good start toward the 1934 cab.

There were atleast 3 trucks with coachbuilt beds, to carry some Special cars.
I've heard there was a Ford AA i still haven't found pics of, the 1928-ish Diamond T has apparently been lost to history somewhere, the 1934 Diamond T was found, restored, and now lives with one of the cars in the race garage / museum.

Anyway,


What's that?






I gotta say the Coal & Gravel truck did pretty well.

Get loaded outta your mind

Since i don't have a flat dumpbody with a tailboard, I learned that the bed will leave a roll of material at the transition.
I can't complain about how she did in the crumb rubber. I think it looked and performed as expected!

Needs wiring dressed, battery connector upgraded to Deans, antenna holders installed, esc switch mounted, glass & interior reinstalled...

----

Between some Dumptruck and Loader threads, I got to wondering what size is a scaled "Yard" of material.
Thought it might be fun to eventually make a Yard Scoop, so 3 foot cube, 36"
1/12 cube 3"
1/14 cube 2.571"
1/16 cube 2.250"
