This is the concrete mixer from Wood. If I was to do this again I would make the barrel an inch larger in diameter.
It seems to be a little small in relation to the rest of the truck. There is clearance enough to enlarge it that much and you don’t glue the barrel pivots in until the barrel is complete. You can always turn it smaller if it doesn’t look rright.
My grandson doesn’t seem to mind, though.

I used to drive one just like it! 1987 Peterbilt with the long slender drum and bridge master just like that one!

Nice looking build, but I agree another 1” diameter to the barrel would improve the appearance.
