Two weeks ago a friend at school addressed me and said that he saw the picture of the model Tri-axel kenworth that I previously made on Facebook. He asked me If I would make a replica of his dad’s truck for him to give as a fathers day gift. So here is the model I made him, it is an exact replica of his dad’s Peterbuilt. The body is cherry left over from the Bell 407, and tri-axel Kenworth projects. The frame is walnut and other parts are maple, beech and padauk. I used the basic shape of the truck from the toys and joys plan, but everything was modified and new parts were added to make it as accurate as possible. I did not do this for free, as supplies and time is expensive, I charged him $200, he was happy with this price, as am I.
Thanks for taking a look,
