Love it. And you are right, it is waiting for a trailer. One like this:

I went back to the workbench to find your source for the wheels. It is not mentioned other than they are resin. Where did you get them?

Looks great Kerry. Go ahead and shorten the trailer like the picture above. It will fit the era better and take up less shelf space.

The wheels & tyres appear to be copies of the Italeri Opel Blitz parts.

Interesting.  I might need to look into this as I need something like these for a Ford F8.

They're OK size wise, but 8-stud fixing and have military tread pattern on the tyres.  Also, the PCD of the stud pattern is larger than you'd typically see on US trucks - same goes for 10 stud British and Euro wheels vs. US ones, the US wheels have a smaller PCD.

Thanks for  information.  I have no idea what a PCD is, but I'll look it up.
