Jamie Davis Heavy Rescue Team from Highway Thru Hell

Postby timtosino » Thu Mar 30, 2017 8:12 pm

Jamie Davis Heavy Rescue is a towing company based in Hope, whose main operations are on the Coquihalla Highway and are featured on the TV Show "Highway Thru Hell". I did my Jamie Davis Rotator back in 2014 and said I wanted to eventually try to do the same truck in 7 wide. After seeing 4000022 I wanted to try to use those techniques on a new 7 wide truck but around that same time, I heard that Jamie had sold his prized truck the Rotator. When Season 5 of the show started airing last fall I started building the next biggest truck in his fleet which is even newer, a 50-ton Tri-Drive Western Star along with a smaller tandem unit and a Toyota Tundra for Traffic Control.

Heavy Rescue 117 is a Western Star Tri-Drive  Century tow truck with stabilizers, and a side puller (3rd winch on the driver's side). Used for recovering Semi-Trucks and other large vehicles.

Image

HR 116 is a Western Star Tandem Tow Truck with sleeper cab. Smaller than 117, but tandems can do just a much work as the biggest trucks.

Image

IR 104 is an Incident Response Truck for flagging traffic control. Toolbox in bed. Dispatched to secure accidents before the bigger trucks arrive or roadside service to smaller passenger vehicles.

Still working on Al Quiring's Truck aka "The Green Monster" which is unit as big as 117 and a VSA Highway Maintenance Snow Plow (all in 7 wide) and I may just tackle Jamie's Newest Truck HR 126 (which hasn't made an appearance on TV yet) in time for BrickCan

Sweet. Now you need some backdrop and some crashed up trailers to rescue.

Thanks guys, eventually I want to create a scene in front of the Great Bear Snowshed on the Coq' that's where most of the action happens in the snow!

That sounds like it could be a fun build.

Yup, just starting to envision how to do those bears in the concrete.

These trucks look awesome Tim!

I noticed that on the longer trucks the wheels fit nicely under the mudguards but on the smaller truck there's a bit of a space... just design or are these two different types of wheels?

Thanks! On the pick up truck you mean? Yeah the Tundra has Off-Roading Tires that are bigger. I'll admit the Tundra looks a bit out of scale compared to the Heavy Duty Trucks but eh it works for me.
