This project was done with my 36 year old son, because he wanted to learn woodwork. It was a lot of fun and now he is making trailers for it. To turn it into an Aussie road train. A B double. Iw will be working on my next project. See next post…:o)#

Update: it helps having a neighbour who is a sign writer to help with decals. Trailers now in progress…

Amazing…! The detail is great…especially on the tires and rims. I look forward to seeing the trialers her is making.

This is a fantastic truck. The correct use of wood to form all the contrast is awesome. Can’t wait to see the trailer. And what will be on the trailer?
