This Peterbilt 389 tractor and Rogers 60 ton trailer is built against a real unit driven by my best friend who is the fleet manager for Sanitary Construction in Rockaway, NJ. It is made from Cherry and Walnut has over 300 pieces and took a hundred and twenty two hours to build it has been a really fun project. now I am on to another truck and trailer going to Texas which the trailer alone should be nine and a half feet long with all the pieces.

Thank you for the compliments. The model is 70 inches long. The trailer I did more suspension wise. With the fenders etc on the tractor and a lot of fragile details on it, I put less underneath to prevent people from wanting to pick it up and turn it over.
