Custom built for our local Port Vincent Hardware Store & now on public display in the shop’s front window for everyone to see.

The strip,” lights,” on the steps are small pieces of self-adhesive safety tape, cut to size, & fitted into position with a pair of tweezers, while the Chrome work is high gloss ” Silver,” paint, and the tires,( tyres ) are simply black-painted, allowed to dry, then given a coat of gloss varnish. The artwork is all drawn on first, then wood burnt onto both sides of the trailer.

-- Roger.

Hell Yes! Has to get a lot of attention for them!

I am assuming the wood-burnig was all done before assembly; as it is a bunch easier then.

Great job. I can see a load of big rigs in the background. You have the makings for a model trucking company. Your models are creating a challenge for other model makers. I build locomotive models in 1:16 scale, but I might get into truck models.

Absolutely Awesome.
Thanks for sharing.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
