Here are pictures of a model I’ve just completed. It was made from pictures the owner (a lady) suppied me with. The real challenge was the front fenders. The total lenth of the model is over 50 inches long.

No, these are wheels I’ve bought and modified to look like the originals.

Wow Alain, I’ve just come across you’re trucks and they are absolutely incredible. The attention to detail is terrific. I built a truck a while back and haven’t gotten around to posting it yet… and now it looks so plain compared to yours. Tres bien!

How about some up close pictures of the heavy duty machinery we can see in your other projects….

Hi Alain;

This is incredible!

Having made a model backhoe with my son, I can appreciate the amount of time and attention these projects require.

Excellent workmanship. Very impressive.

Awesome truck. How did you get all of the pieces you glued together for the tank the exact same size and smoothness?

I’ve glued the parts together, turned the assembly on a lathe, then cut the bottom part and glued a taper block to form the bottom parts of the trailer. For the front and rear, I turned 2 disk the size of the cylinder, glued them to the ends before cutting the bottom and after gluing the tapered part on the bottom, added 2 small parts on the ends of the tapered part. After I did a lot of sanding.
