Volker, Thank you. Here are views of some of the trucks from a farther distance. The first three each had a sprayed on coat. The last one was only done with a brush.

Ray, Thanks. That truck wound up on my home layout. I like that red fender too.

Russ, Thanks. I appreciate your understanding of how these models are being displayed and used, but I have a long way to go to approach the group here.

Here is another truck for my layout. It's an HO Mini Metals pickup that was converted to a pulpwood hauler. It's a composite of
3-4 prototype trucks found in online photos from approximately the same time frame. I like the homebuilt look.
There is also a photo of it on my layout here under Modelers at Work:  http://www.finescalerr.com/smf/index.php?topic=3067.0

It exhibits both credibility and charm. -- Russ

Nice, reminds me of Chester's work.

SandiaPaul, Thank you! Chester's trucks were very nicely done.
