Go Anywhere Truck

Post by garylmast »

I guess I was watching too many Alaska TV shows. I saw a picture similar to this so I thought that might be a cool project. I got the truck from Stetchup and saw a picture of the tracks somewhere. I used Aspire and Rhino for the modeling.

The tracks are made from Alder then I used a weather-oak stain for the coloring. They definitely looks like rubber. The rollers are padauk with poplar insets. I use poplar for most of it, but used Oak for the dash and steering wheel.

NICE Gary !!
Those DO look like rubber :)
First time I saw one of those conversions on the way to go skiing...I thought "STRANGE!!"
Learned later he had a tourmaline mine on top of the nearest peak...
and the only way he could do 4 stream crossings and the peak reliably 4 seasons with loads.
Cheaper than buying a Thiokol like the ski area has!! :)
Nice job!!
