Steer Car and Kenworth tow rig—New Pics- 12-2-18

Recommended Posts

Great build, but I think truck frame should be shorter. I would build the cab from styrene.

Good luck!

Gauging the build to this photo, to me the wheel base looks fairly close.. I could be wrong though....

Ok I guess it does look antouch long!! K, easy fix!! I’ll chop the nose off tonight and shorten the leading edge of the belly!!

Didn’t get much chance to work on it this weekend. But I did get the frame shortened and floor in the cab!!

Your decision to shorten the frame was probably a good option,  everything should flow better 

It definitely looks more....... Right now!!! Lmbo

Thanks gents!! Got a front panel/firewall put in last night! I’m not going all nice and neat on this. It’s being built to look like it’s been used awhile. Panels aren’t lined up 100% and the body will have some rough areas in it to show character!

Well, here we are, getting the Steer car near done! Next will be the KW tow rig and dolly, then the load that will span across the two! 

I have managed to get some things done! Bunk for the load, interior work, steering, and working on a tow bar right now!

This is really cool but with the big rig accidents I've seen that's one rig I would not ride in. Keep up the excellent work.

Awesome project, I have never seen this vehicle before.

That is why it is all the more fun that this vehicle is captured in a model.

Thanks gents!! Hope to get more work done on it this weekend! Get the body ready for paint and interior is about all that’s left on it! I’ll also be starting the KW tow rig that will be ahead of this mess!! 

Coming together!!!!
