WW2 Military CCKW/G506 Project
Posted by hct728 on Saturday, February 04, 2017 4:38 AM

Anyone ever notice the similarity between the Revell '41 Chevy pickup cab and the WW2 military truck cabs?  Appears that G506 was the two axle and CCKW was the three axle variant.  I'm thinking the pickup cab on the Opel Blitz chassis with a scratchbuilt nose. It even looks like the full-size hood was somewhat cobbled together itself!  Front axle would have to be live too, hmmm...

This is a great idea. Id love to see it happen. Use old monster truck axles, they are usually Rockwells which were sourced from military trucks of that era.

Thanks for the tip, Jesse! I just happen to have a couple of those Jurassic-theme monster truck kits I got at Wallys on closeout way back when

seems like a legit project opportunity. I once converted the Nappa 49 International KB8 diecast into the 'Planet Terror' truck, which looks easy compared to this.

Great work! Those trucks were actually built by Dodge and were known as the M37.

Similar, but the M37 was a dedicated pickup built by Dodge and didn't use the same cab.
 
 
With a real factory pickup bed, the M37 might be an even better project!
