  6. hello jim , you want something like this front , you know where i have it from

    3036e928809c63223d9d719bcdc13a96.jpg

    now i use a italeri 49 ft trailer because the sidewalls are good for the old look , so cut and lower it to a 30 ore 32 ft trailer , i think thats the correct size of that time ??

    still a lot of cuttin and saw and try to make it looks good for a old style trailer

    jacobus

  7. beside the other projects i am also workin on a leader , a australian truck from long time ago , there is not much to find but i have a brochure and that helps for the info , like the engine , suspension so here a couple of picture,s of this old lady

    the donor is the italeri australian truck but remove the airsuspension and replace a rockwell 6 rod under the chassis , also a cat 3408

    12e99e934e67b728c897d6c668c7ed69.jpg

    that is for the right high so the hood wil fit

    the cat fits nice in the chassis and now can the gearbox mount to the engine

    and also the suspension
