This is my version of the ATM White Freightliner. I wanted to make a very tired and weathered truck and liked the look of the dual drive day cab. I used the salt method with a base of brown under the green and then added some more weathering with acrylics.  The cab was very fiddly to put together, but other than that, I found it went together well. I shortened the stacks a bit and add some air hoses. I'm pretty happy with it and felt I didn't rush it with my second model kit since I was a teenager (I always got frustrated with models when I was young). Thanks for looking!

A rusted up logging trailer would be very fitting for this old girl....nice weathering.

I like the sound of that! I was looking at getting one of those tri-axle dump trailers and making it a metal recycling truck or something.

 

Thanks to you both!

I like both ideas for the trailers...been wanting to build a few scrap yard pieces myself.
