I just received the T & J plan for the Big Rig. I am building 2 of these for the Shipping managers of the sandpaper company I work for. I have not started yet but have been looking over the plans. Photos, hints and warnings would be helpful. I would like to customize it any ideas of things to add? The rigs will be to celebrate the 50th year in business. The trailer will have the company logo and slogan. Maybe picture of the product done on decal paper.

I have built the Wood magazine construction series. I am now building the T&J Garbage truck. I’m following the plans closely on this build. Learning how they build the cab and some suspension ideas. I will probably scratch build the next one. As far as customizing you have the actual vehicles and trailers add things that are unique ti the company.
Post pictures when done. If you would post the build in a blog everyone on here likes to see new ideas and other ways of doing things. Do a search of the projects and blogs here there are a number of very talented people posting various models on here.
