That sounds like an interesting project. Are you going to do the Freightliner as well? Also, do you have any more pics of the IH Transtar in your avatar photo?

If you have drawings of the trailer with dimensions and all I might consider making it as a CNC milled kit. Th trailer looks very good. What make is it??
