Buildex Tow master and Beach Patrol Trucks
Posted by mmthrax on Monday, February 05, 2018 5:09 PM

Wanted to bang out a couple of easy ones while at the parents house.  This will go to the 8 yr old kid that lives across the street.

It is the Buildex Tow Master and Beach Patrol truck.  The kit can be built two different ways.  There were two in the bargain bin, so I am building it both ways.  

 

Here is what you get in the box:

The rolling chassis.

Just keep picking away at it...

Cab and board holder installed.

The tailgate will actually swing down, but it takes a little more force than I am comfortable with, so I will leave it alone.

Fenders being installed.

The finished article.

Board in situ.

Here is where it gets interesting.  A second rolling chassis is built, and the wrecker bed ready for installation.

The wrecker bed has three positions.

Uh oh, service call....

Position 3.

Position 2 and back to the shop.

These were a riot to play with.  I am sure the kid across the street will have a blast.

This is the fleet that I built.  These are easy and fun.

Just keep picking away at it...
