The customer spec's out the equipment needed for thier specific activity.This one has a mid mount engine, Front steer, High Flotation tires, Dump bed and mid mount crane Cab, crane is scratchbuilt, everything else from the parts box
The real vehicle is made by the Brown Bear Corp This model was not a kit! Frame, Cab Crane was scratchbuilt Engine, tires and dump bed from parts box Tires were off a monster truck just not sure which one Thanks for compliments
great build, but i'm curious, have you posted these pictures on another forum? I'm just asking because i saw this model on another forum well over a yer ago.
Yes I have posted this build on other forum's- A few other forums in fact well before I found this site and the CTEMBC Thanks for the compliments- There is a website out there with a lot of these types of units for building reference if you need it Just type in keyword Brown Bear ATC
Those tires look like the tires I had on an old RC truck I had when I was a kid...I think it was the Tamiya Midnight Pumpking...am I right?
Dan , If my memory serves me right I beleive the tires were out of the Orange Blossom Special pulling truck - The Pumpkin RC Had much bigger tires but same style and appearence I had one of those also - That end of the hobby got real expensive fast so I backed off and stayed with the models which isnt much less expensive. I just had to let something go- so I stayed with the models
