#12025 - Company Decal Accessory Pack - Melton Truck Lines
Decals For Truck Tractors & Trailers, 1/87 (HO) scale - Includes decals for Melton Truck Lines company door logos with fuel and use permit information and unit numbers
Melton Truck Lines was based in Shreveport, Louisiana during the era of our decals and based on our research, had nationwide authority though they seemed to operate mostly in Texas, Oklahoma, and the southeastern United States hauling primarily building materials. Melton operators owned a fairly wide variety of used equipment as well as fairly new trucks. Suitable readily available models would include Athearn Freightliner and Kenworth models, especially in the fancy owner operator paint schemes. Older Herpa North American prototype models would also be appropriate. Any resin or specialty sleeper equipped model truck tractors from the early '60s and even possibly the late '50s through late '80s would be good candidates as well. Our information is incomplete as to whether Melton operated company trucks during this period. We know Melton owned van trailers with the jack rabbit logo in addition to flatbeds.
