Got this at hobby lobby with a 40 off coupon.

Gonna build this as a mild custom rig.

This is my first big rig, so go easy on me.

Scratch building the visor and gonna scratch build a headache rack as well as a Texas front bumper for it.

The metal axles are MIA so I made some....

Good luck James. I am about done with the AMT Freightliner COE. I also purchased mine at HL. I think that Diamond Rio would look cool with the logging trailer.

Diamond Reo? Good. Customized Diamond Reo? Better. Customized DR by James Evans? Should be awesome!

James, I have seen the trailer question before, so......... I asked. My daughter works at our Hobby Lobby and I know the managers real well. They have a corporate list of what they can order. It is the same for every single store in the nation and unfortunately, that list does not contain trailers. They are not able to explain the reasoning because those order sheets just show up on a 1:1 semi trailer with the latest shipment as they are updated.
