I have some additional vehicles available, first is a 1940s fuel truck body ($3.00 each).  These are designed to fit the 1941-47 Ford/Chevrolet COE trucks issued earlier. 



Also available is this dump truck bed ($3.00 each).  This is more of a generic bed that a customer requested.
The base is a scale 14 ft. 3 inches long.



Next is this 1946 Chevrolet 4 door sedan:


Also available is a 1946-47 Ford 4 door sedan.  This took me several years to complete:

Also available is a 1948 Chrysler 4 door sedan:


a 1949 Oldsmobile Town Sedan:


a 1955 Cadillac 4 door:


... and lastly, a 2000-04 Ford Focus 4 door sedan:


The above are shown with the casting flash removed from the window openings for clarity.  You will need to remove the flash from the lower edge of the body, parts of the chassis, and the window openings before painting and assembly.  To order, just send me a PM with the quantities you are interested in.

I should also note that first class postage within the continental USA is now $4.75 per order, and parcels to Canada are a minimum of US$10.50.
Also please note that the M35 military truck has been discontinued, and the M54 truck will be discontinued when it is sold out.  These are too hard to cast and the molds are worn out.

Below is the updated product listing.

Beautiful! Any plans to represent the mid to late 1930s?

I already offer one truck and two cars from the 30's, and I'm working on more.

That's good to hear! For us late forties/post WWII guys, these will be right at home as all automobile production was halted in favor of military needs durin the war. Lots of thirties cars and trucks on our roads....

I really like your kits/cars!  Do you start with a HO model and "shrink" them then cast once you get the size that you want?
I'm looking to try just that with a couple die cast items I have that I want in N but are way too big as they were made.
Sorry to bug you, just wondering how you arrive at such great items.  If you wanna PM me, that's ok too.
Thanks!!!
Chuck

Some were HO scale, some were 1/43rd scale, one or two were 1/32 scale when I started.  One vehicle was kitbashed from 1/43rd and 1/48th scale parts, ie some details were reduced from 1/43rd scale to fit on the 1/48th scale vehicle, and afterwards that result was then shrunk down.  Here is a description I posted over at TrainBoard some time ago:

https://www.trainboard.com/highball/index.php?threads/how-to-cast-n-scale-vehicles-from-larger-scale-masters.53668/

I've got a few more details I can send you if you are interested.

The fuel truck body was mastered directly in scale by a friend of mine on his AnyCubic Photon.

Would love to see some modernish Chevy's in the mix as well, from the photos the models look great.


Also I'd love to see a AE86.... For Tofu Delivery reasons ..
Science isn't about why, it's about why not. Why is so much of our science dangerous? Why not marry safe science if you love it so much? In fact, why not invent a special safety door that won't hit you in the butt on the way out, because you are fired! Not you, test subject, you're doing fine.

Brian, I saw on Facebook that you completed a Ford H cab. Is it commercially available yet?



Now seeking Pacific NW N scalers to create a Modutrak-style modular club featuring NP's shared mainline between Seattle and Portland. PM me if interested.

Any chance you could add a photo here for the non-FBers?

I will when I have more available.  I'm not on FB either, the post there must be from a customer.
