Don Mills has some nice resin 50's trucks:How about a 1950s era mining truck. Euclid, International, or Mack. All of the trucks available now are too modern. I'd also like a mining shovel from the 1946 to 1950 era. Ertal has a great model of a P&H shovel but it again is modern.
Nate, I'm working on playing with some UPS trucks too. What about them newer Sterlings?I seem to find the exact opposite. Truly modern trucks (as in the last 3-5 years) are difficult to find outside of resin craftsman-style kits or kit-bashing Herpa vehicles. I'm trying to collect enough tractors to model a UPS & Overnite fleet, but the Volvo and newer Mack trucks require resin kits that cost upwards of $40 a piece. On the other hand, Classic Metal Works makes dozens of 1950s trucks and other 1930s - 1960s vehicles in the $6 - $12 range. (http://www.toytrainheaven.com/.sc/ms/cat/HO Vehicles--Classic Metal Works)
No resin one? I'd say, try suggesting it to Dennis Aust, he makes a number of Kenworths.I still cant believe, after all these years, and all of the over-the-road semi trucks that have been out. NO ONE, but NO ONE, makes a 1970's Kenworth Cab-Over in a single, double, or aerodyne version!!! Tyco did a sorry attempt, but where's the GOOD ones???
