Sorry to bump this old thread guys. :oops: Wow wonder where dude got that 51 Ford panel? Man i would love to do a Digger 1! Any you guys know about this body? I've never seen one like this ever might be custom made maybe?

Here's a YouTube video showing a good chunk of all these amazing trucks shown in this thread.

A guy from CA made these. He made Grandma Digger, Son Uva Digger, King Sling and Captains Curse. He wants to start again but just doesn't have time now. There is another guy that made a ford panel but he isn't at this time either. It doesn't have as much detail and is a little smaller than the one pictured.

That is an awesome truck! Was always a fan of Awesome Kong 2 and those crazy Allison aircraft engines. Thanks for sharing and great work on the truck.
