Very impressive! Love the lighting and the chrome stacks.
What did you make the chrome stacks out of?

This tractor model is beautiful and so nicely done. It has lots of fine details and a lot of wonderful craftsmanship. Have you built the trailer for it?

Beautiful model. When adding details not called for on the plans, you never know when to stop. It takes me a long time to build anything (model trains) because I always can find something more to add for detail. One can start out building a toy and end up with a well detailed model.

BTW; welcome to the forum.

Thanks for your contribution from down under. A very nice truck. In the past I have considerd to use lightning. I didn’t because I would consistend only use wood. But I must say that I like your truck with lightning very much.
The light really is a great add. Maybe you can tell use how you did it?
