I've posted this particular tractor before, but I finally got around to adding the trailer to it.

The trailer really sets this tractor off. Nice job.

Thanks guys, the truck looks a lot better with the trailer. I just wish the decals would have worked a little better on the side of the trailer.

It really looks great!!!!!!!!!! To solve the slight transparency issue of the decals, find another set and place them directly over the one that are on the trailer. This will make them more opaque.

Fantastic pair you got there. I love that trailer. Great job on this build. Both of them. Somehow I missed, what brand is the trailer?

The trailer is the old AMT Trailmobile moving van.

Bitner,

Wow, that looks great! I've got to ask, is that model RR benchwork I see in the photo?

Hi J.C.:

Yeah, that's my other hobby. It's the Northern Pacific Railroad in Tacoma Washington about 1960 in N scale. It's still under construction, no scenery but almost all track is in and running.

Excellent model. Correct trailer for the year of the tractor. You are one of the few that includes the trailer hook-ups.
