Introduction: Trucks

This took me a long while, I built a truck in different models and included a new feature with combining 4x4 and steering in one model.

The Models:
Standard Cab (with Plow optional)
Crew Cab
Dodge T Rex *Google Search Images *
King Ranch (Dually)
Monster Tires (4x4)

*Updated 9/14/15. this project is abandoned due to many errors of the 4x4 not working 100%, transmission with reverse and forward switch doesn't stay together, also rear differential doesn't operate when the truck is slimmed short and lifted.

      could you send me some pics of the undercarrage of the trucks, please

      I based the design off my f150. just a regular frame holding the body on. it's a poor build decoration sitting on my coffee table with the suspension collapsed from its heavy weight while holding my controllers on the bed. this is the 4 door t-rex w/ Plow I'm showing in the pic, the

      (sry finger hit the send while typing) the frame here is an idea from building bridges and roofs. u may see the patterns from a Walmart ceiling used to hold it's own weight up, except I added an extra layer for reinforcement. this had to be done so it wouldn't sag in the middle.

      ok thank you, and thats a very interesting idea for the frame

      This is pretty cool! Only thing I don't like about k'nex car models is that there are no k'nex wheels big enough to be proportionate with the larger models such as these. Regardless, great job.
