I found these online at a train supply house. They are pretty neat but lacking the detail that we typically get from our host. These are from Atlas, there is another run planned, with RR company markings, in more industrial style coloring. Sorry for the mess on the workbench, too many projects are going on.

Nice Find! Glad to finally see a regular cab long bed pickup truck close to 1/50th scale. Looks like it will pair up quite well with NZG 1/50 Cat Machines of the 70s and 80s. Will have to get the undecorated version for sure.

The pickup looks nice. I checked them out on Atlasrr.com, and it says they are based on the 1973 model year. It also looks like Atlas got their hands on access to the Sword F250s. Good move, Chuck.

Those green dirt-scoopy-dumpy things in the background look awesome. I hope you share some pictures when yours are done.

Guys, thanks for the compliments. The Green Scoopy is a TTS-24 Kit from RR models. It has been a 10 year project to assemble. The Mack is a U cab with an off road exterior frame dump body. I displayed it at Imcats last year and the UPS guy didn't do it any favors. I'm working on finishing touches and adding the bulldog and mirrors that just re-appeared in a pile of Truck Miniatures stuff that faired a similar fate. Ill try to get some photos when I'm happy with it.

Is that a CCM pushy with a custom OROP?

Yes the pushcat features a Dirtboy Customs D9G ROPS available on his Etsy site. The ripper is a franken ripper I have had for years.
