looking at the wood decking, I have some balsa which translates to 2X6. The "woodgrained" original plastic decking shows closer to 2X10. Which is more plausible?

Go with the 2x10's.  Every wood deck I've seen has had wider boards.  As said above, use basswood.  Northeast scale lumber is easy to get and relatively inexpensive.

Made the decking out of Mahogany. I feel it has the "right" look.

Pat,

     Once again you have built a really good looking model. Your trailer goes well with that tractor.

Will be watching to see what you build as a load for it .

 

 

   be Well
