It is truly amazing the ideas that can come from ones creative mind..........

 

On the steering, since the center axle you have already mounted is a driven (powered) rigid axle with a power divider & dual tires, how exactly will it "articulate" with the front axle???  What happens to the power in the drive shaft when the 1st axle in the rear tandem also has a power divider?

 

Seems to be a slight stretch of a modern engineering marvel........

The center drive axle is not a locker or a limited slip, at would be able to track as a single wheel wonder.

Thanks Richard

Ive driven over the road for some year(in the office now), I must say this quite an awesome build. I do believe there is an articulating drive axle available. Check out Sourkroiys web page for his truck parts, he has numerous resin axles of all types. Being that yours I'd already set I'm with you on the fact it's a model......so let's all use our imaginations a bit and some "make belive" in our minds and just say the darn thing would turn in real life and enjoy build progress. :-)

Thanks Chris , if you are not doing a build of some ones car or truck imagination is a big part of modeling.

OK now back to the build!

by the looks of the sides,,,the height is a real problem,,,bridges are only 14ft  that would be just over the heigth of the cab,,,box is way too tall,,,,,,been working for Navistar Int. for 40 yrs,,,,seen salesmen take stacks off on low bridges,,,,hate too lose the whole roof of that trailer,,,,,,
