This is a replica i made from a picture of the real truck ,we used to have a big paper mill up here where i live and the mill was called Brown Company ,if you google it you will see all kinds of photos of there logging operations .They tore down the mill some years back and put many hundreds of people out of work ,this is a 1954 Gmc they were using GMC trucks for a while before going to Ford’s hope you like it .

horny, I agree with GR8 (about paint), however, you seem to have pulled it off with this model… Just don’t make it a habit!... (just kidding).

Only thing I can add is that they had bloody accurate saws back in 1954 (pic 3)...

I find it totally refreshing to see a replica that represents what actually was. The only criticism I can offer about this stellar model is that the chain binders are missing. lol
Beautiful model
