« Part 218: Semi Truck T&J #3 Part 219 of Toy Construction series Part 220: Semi Truck 4.5 Steering and walnut frame »

Again got a little more done.
Fixed up the front wheel wells and made the sleeper.

And playing with a steerable front end, it may not work but its a fun experiment.
I kind a like it when the front tires are not pointed to the front, just adds that little extra.

These will probable be the front wheels I use but will need to make a ton a back wheels for truck and a trailer.

Been trying to come up with a way that the pivot point for the wheels is as close to the frame and tire as possible.

I like that steering setup. I’ve been trying to come up with one for quite some time. That is too simple.

Tony your comment got me to thinking, by doing it this way a front suspension shouldn’t be to hard.
