Hi Rick :wave:

Can't quite see the front of your truck.
But it is bound to look like a Ford.
Basically because IT IS a Ford !

Something to do with Uncle Joes 5-year plan...
...to build more Fords than Ford ! ;)

Later model trucks had very basic 'square' sheet-metal mudguards...
...since the Germans rather inconsiderately nicked their metal stamps !

The Russians made a TOTALLY HUGE AMOUNT of Ford trucks.

I just recently got this one.
Still makin' 'em in Russia...
...just out of styrene !

:moose:

Si.

Railtruck or bus potential, for sure !

Hi again Rick :wave:

I think that Ruskie fuel tanker, would make an AWESOME railtruck !

Sans fuel tank, which could get made into some kinda redneck logging watercar monstrosity !
You've got a basic Ford flatbed.
A few planks round the sides & BINGO !

I would consider an HO Kadee archbar truck at the front maybe.
At the rear, perhaps a std. On30 size wheelset.

I also just got an amazingly small motor/gearbox unit.
These lil' crackers cost about $2 bucks !!
There are LOADS of 'em listed on eBay, in various RPMs & Voltages.

Check 'em out.
Search :- Mini Gearbox Motor, Planetary Gear Motor, Mini Gear Motor etc.
Cheapest listings first.

Runs like a dream.
Worm on shaft, spur-gear on rear wheelset.
Bob's yer uncle !
or Joe's yer uncle, as they say in Siberia !! ;)

This is quite useful as well.
Cost about $1.50c a buck fifty !

Search:- 60 Piece Gear Set.
There are others as well.
But the '60 Piece' listing is the cheapest.

Only 2 worms included.
But these are a buck a bag !

The hole size is often 2mm, about the same as an On30 wheelset.
A 2mm hole worm, will need drilling out to 3mm for the gearbox shaft.

Si,

Cool stuff! You can bet I will be looking into the motors and gears, for sure!

Here's a pic of the front of the BZ38. It is a Ford, for sure.

I was going to use the refueller as a fire railtruck, but then I found an actual fire truck kit made by the same company, so I ordered up one of those, too. I have a diecast 1:48 stake bed from a Ford truck, so there's that.

I have a few of the Bachmann HO 44 and 70 ton switchers with the dual motor setup that I can use for mechanisms for the plastic kits. :)

Here is a photo of the fire truck kit.

Apparently, someone has posted online 3D renderings of the parts on sprues for a lot of these Russian kits. If you have or have access to a 3D printer...

This used to be a REO fire truck, now a log hauling piece of rolling funk. The fire equipment is now "details" scattered about the layout.

Woodie

Hi all,
Try this standard-gauge Buda for size


One from the Canadian timber industry - Port Alberni, Vancouver Island, BC
More information at on it and an unusual looking gas-speeder at http://www.alberniheritage.com/image-gallery/term/sub/882

That's my oddity contribution for today, Odd enough??

And the French thought their 'Micheline' was something ground-breaking...at least a nice way of recycling old tender frames.
