I MADE THIS Peterbuilt tractor & duck tail low boy trailer for my son inlaw, It is just like the one he hauls his harvester and forwarder to his job sites. He is a logger. He brought me 18 coard of oak and maple, all standing dead trees, great fire wood. Now I whant to make him a model of his forwarder to put on it. I worked on this for about a month and a half off and on. Chuck

again, you do beautiful work… obvious is you attention to minute detail… super nice. (of course who isn’t partial to big rigs?)

p.s. don’t let it fall off of that railing!!

Chuck, I look at the picture and say nice. Then I really look at it. The badges on the hood and grille, the hand holds on the exhaust stack, the headache rack, the articulated mirrors, the horns, the running lights …

I think that this is one of the best if not the best vehicle you have done so far.

That is fantastic! Do you turn your own tires too or use stock tires? The back tires look stock, but the hubcap in the front tire looks custom. Great work.
