Future Lonestar project

Hi guys. I'm in the process of planning out my next build. A double sleeper Lonestar. What do you guys think? Should I make it a tri axle or leave it as it is?

You know, in this hobby, anything goes. Unless you want to build something that is realistic and know what the truck is going to be used for. Is this going to pull some heavy duty stuff over a long distance? Have fun with it and make what YOU want!

Making it about me (and my Nebraska days) always fond of dolled out big bunk tri axles pulling tri axle cattle trailers.

Large, loud and proud.....LOL

I would say that big of a sleeper warrants a tri-axle setup on the rear, go for it.

Ok. I'm not sure what a scale foot is. How many inches is that?

That would be 1 foot =12 inches then divided by 25 (for 1:25 scale of the model) so: 12/25= .48 inch or near 15/32 inch. In other words, if you are able to do so, stretch the frame by 15/32 of an inch. (or a little more for better proportions).
