This is a project I've been working on for over a year and finally finished the ###### thing. Now I have to figure out where to put it. I used the reissue Transtar for the tractor and masked off te paint scheme to go with my other one that is a self loader log truck. The Jeep is a scratch built Peerless 1971 unit that I found great pics of. The 78 Cozad I drew plans for on the computer and built from them. I must have punched over two hundred holes in the gooseneck alone. All the framing is there under neath the deck with the holes punched in them where applicable. The gooseneck is removable. The attachent beam in the rear is also moveable for the 2 axle booster. The booster is a 70's Cozad unit and it like all the other parts is built from scratch. I finished the booster tonight.

I used Krylon gloss black spray paint for the entire unit. The decals are from the Peerless log trailer kit from AMT. I used three different hand held hole punches and I believe there is over 400 holes punched in various parts of the three units. I used basswood planks for the decking and used a sharpie pen to put the nail holes in them.

Looks sharp. Need a load? Here is one taking a corner at the Milton R Young Power Plant in Center, ND. I believe it is a transformer for one of the min yards.MinnkotaRig.jpg
