Mad Max scratch build help

Hey all you car experts…I’m putting together the “bits” for a scratch build version of the 1940 Dodge Fargo truck used in Fury Road, and I need to know if any of you know of a kit in 1/24 or 1/25 scale…? Barring that, what would come reasonably close to a truck from the '40’s with big fenders that I could substitute…? Any and all ideas welcome.

I don’t think there is a 1940 Dodge Fargo truck in 1:24/1:25. However, I plugged in ‘1940 Ford’ into the search box at scalemates and got this:[]=Kits&q=1940+ford&fkSCALENORMALISED[]=%221:00025%22&fkSCALENORMALISED[]=%221:00024%22

PERFECT…! THANKS a bunch mate, just what I needed…

Cool man, sound like you’re planning an interesting project.

This is where I’m kinda heading

Plug in ‘Monster Trucks’ into Scalemates…*

Should be a real interesting build for sure.


Ya Joel, it WILL be interesting as this is only my second attempt at a "Alternate Universe/SteamPunk/Apocalypse type vehicle. I converted an Me109 fuselage to a 4 wheel sand buggy built from parts by stranded British North African troops…or so the story goes… :wink:


AMT’s '40 Willys Gasser might be another option for a starting point as it has a blown V8. It comes as either a pickup or a coupe but I understand some boxings include both options.
