Franklin Mint / 1996 Ford "BIGFOOT" Monster Truck / 1:24th Scale
Blue w/ flames
The body is beautifully painted, glassy smooth and among the best paint jobs I've seen come out of FM. The graphics are especially well done. The frame is diecast metal with lots of intricate detailing. The 'plexiglas' floor ports open like the real truck providing driver access to the cockpit. While the steering wheel turns it does not operate the wheels. There is no direct linkage, only pnuematic cylinders in the 1:1 so this is not a crucial point. Manually turned, the front tires turn the rear Firestones replicating the four-wheel steer concept that these big boys all use. The engine has good use of detail. The tires have nice detailing and replicate the 'shave marks' that the drivers cut into them. The overall appearance of the model will surely turn some heads.
