Welcome to Silver State Specialties! We are committed to offering you quality resin accessories for your model trucks, pickups, 4x4's, SUV's, and (NEW!) G-Scale outdoor trains, as well as various scale military models.

All previous plans are currently on indefinite hold due to our having to take care of elderly relatives and their properties...just the property cleanup alone has worn out my trucks and trailer, which all now require pretty substantial chassis rebuilds. All this work to take care of family members has pushed back my home remodeling, which will probably take a year or more. Currently I have NO place to work on anything, let alone start casting production and make new molds. So everything is on hold until I can get my home remodeled and all my vehicles/equipment rebuilt and repaired. This will take several more years before I am able to resume any production. I apologize for the delay, but family has to come first. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Check out our new REFERENCE section!
  We have pulled out literally hundreds of old negatives for print photos we have had in our own reference library and have started to post these online for your personal reference use. We are having several hundred negatives transferred to Photo CDs, and then formatted for this website so you can use them for your modeling projects. Enjoy!

Check out our new Ghost Towns & Abandoned Mines photos! Need an accurate reference for your railway mining scene, or possibly for a diorama? Then check out our new Ghost Towns & Abandoned Mines photos for great ideas and inspiration.

Our current featured REFERENCE section photos are for the International Payhauler 350, which is still manufactured today by Terex (headquartered in Scotland). The new Payhauler 350 is substantially the same as it was when it was first produced by International-Harvester in the mid-1960s.

We had the good fortune to be able to photograph one during the 1996 MINExpo show here in Las Vegas, and have posted these to a Payhauler 350 Reference page for your modeling benefit. We hope that these prove worthwhile in improving your Payhauler 350 models!

Silver State Specialties was created in 1999 to offer quality resin accessories, replacement parts and conversion kits, suitable for many 1/25-scale plastic model kits.  SSS specializes in accessories and parts for plastic model pickup, SUV, 4x4, and heavy truck & trailer kits.  1/32-scale and 1/35-scale parts and accessories will be available in the future for model truck kits, such as the 1/32 Monogram Snap-Tite and ERTL snap-together kits, as well as 1/35-scale Revell, Italeri, AFV Club, Trumpeter, Airfix, Heller, Tamiya, and other military model truck kits.  Some of these smaller scale model kits are quite well detailed, and a wide variety of photo-etched, resin, and other accessories are widely available for most of these military truck model kits. What's even more exciting is the line of 1/24th & 1/25th-scale military model kits and conversions we are in the early stages of developing, to nicely compliment your ERTL, AMT, Italeri, Revell, and other brands of truck models.

Silver State Specialties is working on resin accessories and complete kits for G- gauge outdoor garden railway trains ("Large Scale") in 1/24th-scale. Some patterns have been completed, and many more are under construction. These kits and accessories will include complete Beyer-Garratt style of locomotives and Narrow Gauge ore hopper cars, as well as 24-inch & 30-inch gauge industrial equipment in this same scale.

SSS also has master patterns partially completed for many 1/16-scale model truck accessories and conversion kits, mainly for the Monogram-Revell 1/16-scale model truck kits.  Some projected accessories for these 1/16-scale kits are front drive axles, different wheels and tires, air cleaner accessories, pusher and tag axles, oil filters and engine accessories, and possibly different engines.  Cab & hood conversion kits remain a possibility for these monsters as well, but are still years away from being offered as there are more pressing projects to push forward with first.  But someday they should be available!

Thank you for your continued support!
