Last year I received an unusual order request to custom build a 1:15 scale Kenworth T908 triple road-train fully optioned, for a young boy who only has 35% vision & is therefore legally blind, and wants to become a Road-Train Driver like his Grandpa, but alas, cannot due to his sight disability, so his Mum, ( Mon in USA ), put in a deposit, and with the kind assistance of some Aussie Truck Drivers who chipped in with some money to cover material costs while I donated my time to build the Model.
His Mum brought her young son over from Adelaide one weekend last November for a, mystery drive, for him to see his big wooden model, ( which he had no idea about ), – The photos tell the story., although will say there was one young boy here who was totally, ” Lost for words,” for quite a while !!!!
- Dimensions for anyone interested;- 3.8 metres, ( over 12ft ) Long x 175mm.( almost 7” ) wide, x 305mm, ( 12” ) to top of stacks.
