Like real truck manufacturers, custom model builders use available parts (wheels, tires, fuel tanks, fifth wheel, cab etc). Depending on what you want, there are only a couple that can scratch build a complete truck. The cost would be astronomical. There is a guy in Mexico that 3D Printed a Kenworth tractor in 1/50 scale.

A lot of people,start with a base model,that has been released for something completely different.Myself,I get 'eight wheel'or,four axle,or twinsteer tippers from the likes of NZG,Conrad,then convert them to U.K. spec,like mudguards on the tip body,easysheet covers,warning labels,liveries,etc.So that might explain the high prices.You basically buy a model,then spend as much on labour,or parts.I don't know of anyone that has literally made any truck/machine,from the ground up.It would probably be impossible!

being told that it would be way to expensive to have a custom truck done from scratch it really is not worth it for me to get one made I have decided to move on from this idea and focus my attention on other things Admin Chuck you can shut this topic down now thanks

Bostonian,

I think there are a lot of options and cost points to have custom trucks made. It all depends on your imagination and what truck you want. Feel free to reach out in a message.

Also you haven’t actually said what model truck you want.
