Freight liner FLC and tanker

Recommended Posts

Finished this pair up the other day, the rig built up easily, the tanker on the other hand was a warped mess. Other than decals and mud flaps, the rig is box stock. On the trailer I decided to make front fenders for it, added flat pads on the landing gear rather than the kit supplied wheels, made new rear fenders to match the fronts and used moebius super single wheels/tires , all in an effort to maybe try to give the tanker a slightly more modern look. The service lines are all that’s left to glue in place, they fell out before the pics, lol. As always, thanks for looking.

That’s an excellent combo. A great example of a 1/24 tractor and 1/25 trailer working perfectly together. Love the finish and decals. Nice upgrades to the tanker, and I like it in white. Looks like a restored trailer in its second life with super singles and new paint, and the truck has been taken care of over the years.

This thing is awesome.... I love what you've done with this one... The supers on the trailer make it look so much like what rolls around here, every day...It sits beautifully on the back of that wonderfully built Freightliner....The fenders up front are worth mentioning, too.... I love it... Excellent work...

Haven't replied too many times to this group, but that is one fine looking rig.  The close-up of the tractor looks almost like a sales brochure, great job.

This combo is off the charts ! I cringed when you said how twisted everything was,  but you massaged it into shape ! 

Fantastic work
