I built the Transtar Eagle about 10 years ago. The Livestock trailer was built about 3 years ago.

Oh, that looks very good to me! I like to see truck models, which are not Volvo or Scania. That's very good looking truck... Paintjob looks very good and it's very clean build, I can't find any big mistakes on it. Trailer looks very good too, where is it from. I'm building '66 Dodge L700 truck, there is a topic in On The Workbench section, but I think, that it's not in first pages... Anyways, your truck and trailer combo looks very good to me, keep it going! :lol:

A very nice pair of models, I wish those old AMT kits were available this side of the pond when they re-issue them, as I don't build European trucks, as they pretty much look the same as each other.

GREAT looking builds. I love cabovers. But this probably ought to be in the trucks forum.

Looks great! That's a really nice combo. I remember going on trips with Dad in a Transtar II pulling a new 48' trailer... Big fun for a kid...

I think it belongs right here Under Glass.

I have to admire a kit that size that has the right details to set it off.
I never thought I would be admiring a stock trailer before but man, you did a super job on the tractor and the trailer.

Definitely on my favorites list for 2010.

I'm over critical of my work, know it's decent, but thanks for the kind words!
