Arlan's railroad is not documented in any blogs or publications so far as I know. So my photos posted here and sometimes on the 1/87 Vehicle and Equipment photo galleries are all there is. In the dioramas thread on this message board I have posted my addition photos

I have fond memories of the Hamm's Bear from watching televised Minnesota Twins baseball while growing up. I was fortunate to find this truck recently and have extensively modified it. The Ford cab seemed perched on the frame CMW used for their International R90 truck. Cab and box both were lowered several scale inches. The oversize bumper was filed to leave only the middle. The under cab fuel tanks were removed and replaced with frame mount tanks and steps from a Life Like Ford dump truck. Photo etch detail parts were added, and a curb side door was added. The goblet decal was taken from a photo of a truck in the Ken Goudy collection and printed on white decal paper. My truck had to have the Hamm's Bear, and I made a decal from an image found using Google Images.
