T&J’s Coke truck. The only change I made was squaring up door window. At the top of window used 3/16 filler strip. I used Bass wood for build. Sure there has to be others like me who paint their models.

NOW IF I CAN FIND DECAL MAKER FOR WHITE COCA-COLA LETTERS FOR TRUCK & CASES! HINT!! How much?

I don’t mind colours. Those bottles required lot of patience, I bet.

About $3 if these are the appropriate size (kind of hard to determine the scale of the truck from just the photo).

If not, try looking at the various hobby stores. They sell transfer decals for a wide variety of models and I’m sure you could find something appropriate if you search hard enough.

Cheers,
Brad

Way cool truck!!!
That first picture looks like it’s ready to be driven to the next delivery.

I have the tanker truck plans which uses the same truck so now I have an idea what it can do, kinda wish I’d a got the POP truck.
Very nice work and the paint sets it off nicely.

Now that’s one great project to start your LJ collection.

The Bruces hit again!!!

Brad thanks. Being nail art, they should work for the bottles. Will send off & get them for bottles. But to small for pop cases & door side.
Bob your way to kind Thanks.
Bruce, Kind of you. Thanks! I have the tanker truck you got plans of. Painted red. Looks nice I think. I’ve been kicken – around ideal of front axle & spring for old time car & truck build. Like Gatto uses on their model A.

I’ve bought one Gatto plan the truck and used the ideas in the plans to soup up my Mack truck build.
Their way of doing plans is so different than T&J but you sure get a lot more details.

Last week I ordered their Model A & Stage coach plans. Have other plans of theirs.
You hit nail on the head. Gatto more detailed. T&J more to choice from. Need them both, I think!

Bruce for me I can’t draw a strait line so the T&J make it easy to get my projects off the ground then add my own touches to spouse it up.
Of course with a printer copier you can shrink or blow up any picture to make a scratch build.

Nice job. Decals… I bought decal paper and printed on my inkjet printer. Could go with coke red, but getting the Coke font might be problematic.

Charles, kind of you to say so, Thanks. Some web site you got

Al, Thank you! I thought of that, but for time period want white. Which guessing as you know takes Alps printer, for home. Last I heard Alps is out of production & expensive. So to get white decals need to pay some one. But not going to sell the farm for decals.
Suppose could make my own, Bruce’s Vending Company. Just hold out for Coke white or nothing.
