This truck has taken a long time in coming. 9 months in Islamabad kept it’s frame on a shelf at home. Like almost all my trucks, tractors and equipment I don’t copy a particular model. This is my version o a heavy hauling truck. All wheel drive. All axles on the truck and trailer have air brakes, Twin stacks denounce a big V8 Diesel under the hood. Inside the cab a Walnut burl dash shows an array of gauges, radios, and shifter’s and air seats. The trailer couples up and hoses attach the brakes and lights. If this load was to scale it would be some old growth Hickory, a heavy haul for any truck, even this one. This bunch of Hickory logs/limbs weighs a tad over 12 pounds. The diorama shows some of the other pieces in my “LOGGING SERIES” Now I need a skidder and a loader.

Great detail on an outstanding model—too bad the dash is inside the cab and too difficult to really get a good close up as I’ll bet it is equally interesting. Any chance you might consider taking progress pictures during the build and before something like the inside dash gets covered?

Nicely detailed and excellent build. A friend of mine took me to a logging site in Canada years back. It is fascinating to watch these guys cut down trees, making paths, and loading. Yours brings back memories. Well done.

We had a logging operation below our house a couple years ago. That’s when the “logging series” started. I photographed and took measurements off the equipment.

That almost sounds like cheating. I can see why it started you in this series. It was a great experience.
