I built rigs in my teens, but they are so expensive now, and my funds are quite limited, so I have to do without, but sure love looking at them!

Hmmmmm, I have a couple of trucks in their boxes that I bought in 1971 while I was overseas. I started both of them (one a cabover and one a long nose), but got derailed by transfers and other comittments. The trialers have never been built, but the tanker has been started, I think. The cabover has a custom pint job with a red cab with blue horizontal stripe and white stars within the stripe; button tucked white vinyl interior, and workable steering. The long nose (Kenworth I think) is painted a light blue, but should be done better or clearcoated.

I don't think there's much chance of me ever finishing these vintage trucks, so I am wondering what they might be worth. I have the original boxes, too.

"Help me....I've fallen and I can't get up." models are crushing me. my pics:
