Hi guys,

i would like to show you my built of an old wrecker based on a Tamiya tractor-truck chassis with a clear Proline body.

This was my first real scale built and it was starting in August 2015.

Now it looks like this:

It was a long way to look like it is now :laughing:

Lets start :cool:

My base - a 2-wheel-drive tractor-truck chassis from Tamiya

One of the most important things are these rope rolls - later more

The first cut is the deepest - sorry, but I just need the cabin :laugh:

I am also planning to use bobbins but may borrow what you did with the spring and screws. Quick and easy way to raise and lower boom.
