GMC 7500 Spreader Truck!

This one was built out of junk, Evergreen Styrene, and Plastruct. The resin cab was a 2nd or 3rd. It was in terrible shape.

Very cool build. It's great to see something different. There is a lot of work evident in this build, and well done it is.

Perfection is achieved not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.

Nicely done! It has a very convincing look to it! Are the steer tires 1/32 scale monster truck tires?

Thanks!! The cab cab itself was a lot of work, not including the bed.

The front tires are resin from Kit Form Services. I think they are referred to as swamp tires. They are scale 48" tires and the rear are from a monster truck and are 66" in scale.

 Thanks! I've seen some around here with 48" tires on the rear, but found this style on line.
