I dont know a thing about the Euro trucks so it always nice to see different things.

Nice old girl!!! Nostalgic...

You did it justice and the wheathering is fantastic.

As far as I know the most of the trucks where going down to middle east, where hauling canvas trailers so the blue molded one you have there is the most accurate for the build.

Looking good, Man.....The trailer looks pretty good.....I have a couple of these that need building....I've just never seen a canvas trailer on a container chassis, before.....It's always bugged me.....Doesn't mean it can't be done, though......Can't wait to see this one finished.....Just gotta see what you do to it..... :)

have found some time to make the trailer a little dirt

but for i go on a must do the tirline gold-yellow [ thats the line you see zigzag on the sail ]

than you can close the trailer and the customs put a seal on , than when you came on the border the customs from that country check the seal of its not broken
