Welcome to Sheepscot Scale Products

Thanks for visiting the Sheepscot web site.

I have recently changed the way I’m distributing Sheepscot kits and accessories so please contact me for any of your HO scale model truck needs. Because a bigger part of my business is custom building trucks I don’t have the time to make up a supply of kits to keep on the shelves. Another reason is that the investment of inventory does not make sense for the small niche market I’m in.

This works to the advantage of those who order kits because they can get exactly what they want for options like tires, bodies, fuel tanks, fifth wheels, and lights. I can send a package with all you need to complete the trucks you want.

Ordering

You can order from Sheepscot by emailing, writing to us at 2 Country Charm Rd., Cumberland, ME 04021, or calling between the hours of 8:00AM to 9:30PM Eastern time 207-829-5134. We accept credit cards (Mastercard of Visa), Money Orders, and personal checks.
We usually ship using the US Mail, prices are between $5.00 to $7.00 for most orders, much less if it’s just for small parts. Shipping is free on orders totaling more than $100.00

I welcome your calls if there’s anything I can do to help you along with your HO scale vehicle or crane building.

Extended Lowbed Trailer

Mack LM tractor with 12.00-24 tires on a 207” wheelbase. Kit number 95140. There is a custom built tandem winch set up and head ache assembly and platform behind the cab.
The lowbed trailer represents wht a contractor might do to adapt an older trailer with plenty of capacity to comply with new weight laws (bridge formula) that required a longer axle spread. In order that the trailer can be used with lighter loadings or transported without a load the front kick-up extension can be folded back and the rear axles can be folded forward or removed.
The removable gooseneck (kick-up)is a Rogers cable operated from one of the winches with the cable reeved over sheave and clear any blocking that might be on the gooseneck.
s/n 102057 trailer has a 28’ level useable deck length and an over all length of 72’. Tires are 11.00-20.

Moving a Locomotive

This rig is modeled after a move that Gerosa back in 1956 transporting a Long Island Railroad engine to to a museum. It was a short move that they could get away with back then but not today.
The custom built trailer is a Rogers, probably 90 ton, 16 11.00-20 tires. The tractor is the Autocar from kit # 95130 but it has 1400-20 tires on back with planetary drive normally used for the crane carriers. There are 12.00-24 tires on front. 200” wheelbase, s/n 101985.

Unloading a M4 High Speed Tractor

Here’s a Roco WWII era M4 high-speed tractor weighing about 15 tons. They were primarily used to pull large guns and had little use in civilian service but could be purchased for very little, especially to small governmental agencies

This scene shows it being delivered from a surplus sales outlet halfway across the country by rail to a local community rescue and public service agency. The tractor has been painted gray and red rather than the normal OD which helps give some color to your scene. The local trucking company borrowed a trailer from the nearby contractor to unload and deliver the machine to the town garage.
The truck is the popular Autocar DC-95T tractor with a 160” wheelbase pulling a Rogers removable gooseneck drop side trailer. When building the kit #95046 the third axle was not installed making it into a 35 ton trailer very popular in the 1950s.

Notice the blocking needed to get the tractor over the rear tires and down onto the deck. Also notice the planking on the drop sides because the tracks are too close together to straddle the center beam of the trailer. The drop side design was to carry carry a crane/shovel as low as possible but in this cane there is no height problem.
