I'm going real, even though everything (trailer and the dozer) looks way too clean, the setting looks too real. Tough one.

I'm saying model. The background/shadows are so obviously real that the truck and dozer have to be a model.

I'm going model on this one. Everything is too new on the trailer and the cat. There are no scrapes on the blade or the treads. The trailer bed is perfect and those chains wouldn't hold this load in any way if it started to shift. Plus any self respecting trucker wouldn't have them that slack. I quit looking at backgrounds when Harry admitted to photoshoping those, except to see if the shadows were more or less pointing the same direction. Harry is really good at making minor adjustments to scenery to make it look right.

Also just noticed that there is no license plate on the trailer. Perhaps it is not needed in the state this was taken, but I have never seen a lowboy without some form of licensing.

Model for several reasons that have been pointed out, the Chain is a definite. The trailer is way too clean for moving a bulldozer on it. Unless they just powder coated the trailer and crane lifted it onto it. The dozer is clean but I have seen them that way going down the interstate, mainly because we have a CAT plant in Little Rock.

Let's go with model.

It all looks too clean, and those shiny puny chains don't look anything like those I've ever seen as used by real truckies.

I'm probably wrong on this one, but I'm gonna say it's a model, there's something about those chains that jus' don't look right, & no binders in sight either.

Jeez, Harry. You may just get us on this one! Photo is so rough, one could make a case (no pun intended) for either way.
So I am voting model.

I'm voting MODEL for many of the reasons already mentioned above. Primarily the unscarred 'dozer blade, the lack of dirt and general grime, the slack in the chains, the lack of a license plate on the trailer, and the fact that the bed of the trailer is bowed UPWARD while the weight of the 'dozer soould weigh it down!
