Got this little COE and trailer for a HO layout, and weathered it up. The truck and trailer needed some dirt to give it that used look. It was washed with detailer wash and airbrushed with different shades of grime.

Nice job.  Should look good in any layout.

Good work! It looks like it just pulled in after a long run. I like how you did the exhaust soot on the trailer.

Excellent.  Looks like what I use to see a lot of, out on the big road, around Chi-town in my 78 Mack, back in the day.

Looks just right! This is incredibly detailed for this scale. Separate windshield wipers,grab handles and steps, really? The rig is barely an inch wide!

Wonderfully realistic weathering. It would have been so easy to overdo it in 1.87th but you really got it just right.

 Chris, what a great job considering its a very small scale, that would look great on a HO scale model Rail Road lay out. I would like to see you build a 1/25 or 1/24 scale truck.
