Collecting model vehicles

More of my toys.These are 1:64 scale mid to late 50's cab overs. The 56 Ford and the 58 Chevy ( I have 2 of these) will get stretched frames one will remain a semi tractor and the other most likely will become a box truck.The blue Ford willprobly end up a flat bed .The black Dodge is a pick up and will stay that way.If anyone wants more pictures of the Dodge just say so . :mrgreen:

Somewhere in my future there is a 1:64th diorama Ijust don't know when or where. Nope

Some time ago Classic Mttal Works realeased the 41's Chevy truck.
Hurray, i thought a 1940's truck!
But i found it misproportionated. The box van too width, the wheels too big in seize for 3-4ton payload truck.

So i grab my saw and cut the box into triples. A stripe of app. 3mm was removed and the two halves were glued together again on a new bottom plate. The box is now somewhat smaller.
There were also smaller wheels mounted coressponding better with the model.
