I took some snaps of a few different trucks, side on, front etc. Then started building up a sketchup model. Then took this, found a heap of scrap timber I have lying around, and started building. This is the result. :)

Each piece has been individually cut from bigger timber, the wheels and fuel tank are lathed, and the trailer sides are made from 3 ply.
