The first project is a Nylint Street Sweeper I built for a man in England who collected primarily Street Sweepers. I used a Nylint Road Roller as a starting point and scratch-built the front container. Added two front tires, two front brushes and a main sweeper brush underneath. I think it turned out OK.

The second project is a custom Nylint 1965 Ford F-100 4 x 4 Pulling Truck. The entire back half of the frame is scratch-built from brass rod, the differentials are scratch-built as is the transfer case. The front weight bracket and bumper was added, and obviously the large V-8 engine from large diecast hot rod. I consider this one of my better custom projects.

    Amazing custom work, you've got the artist eye for the details! Nice job!
