Whites by Topping
By Steve Butler
TOPPING MODELS is primarily known for their desktop aircraft models of which the company made many different examples.
The company also made White 3000 van semis for use as dealership promotionals for the White Motor Company. These rigs are molded in plastic that seems to be impervious to warping.
“White” is heat-stamped above the grille on the cab, and “TOPPING MODELS AKRON OHIO” is embossed in minuscule lettering on the underside.
All are 14-wheel rigs with rubber tires mounted on realistic looking plastic hubs. The rubber tires are marked “HEAVY DUTY” and “10:00 – 20.”
