Went a little crazy building lowboys. I think I maxed out on this one. The lift pylons are spring loaded so it rides up and down. Since I took the picture I have added a rear steer platform for the rear section. It took 3 lowboy trailer kits to make it. The tractor is a W925 with a kitbashed hood to make a T-800.

A genuine transit mixer with torsion bar suspension. Found at a swap meet but I had to pay dearly for it.

Pickup trucks. I love the AMT Silverado kits, there are so many choices between glue kits, snap kits, monster truck kits, and collectibles that I have built too many to count.

This one is a dually snap kit, with the Open Road camper cut down to be a slide-in camper.

Another kitbash mixing parts from several kits. I picked the ugliest colors I could for a shop truck.
