A bumper/grill guard and a winch could definitely hide some of the genericness of the front end.
It's 1:6 scale?
Nice starting with a full bed, opening doors and interior!

According to the Breyer site, there horses and stuff are 1/12 scale. I would think the truck and trailers they sell would go woth these horses and figurers. Figures are 6" tall, those could come in handy too.

if the figures are only 6 inches tall then there's no way in hell that truck is 1/6 scale then.

my guess if the accesories are 1/12 scale, the truck is too.

13" WB is prolly closer to 1:8. So you should be ok building it here.

Yep if it is the standard Breyer stuff it is only 1/12 th scale, they do make some larger scale horses, but they don't make any thing to go with them.

But no matter the size, this should make for a unique, decent build!
