The tractor pulling the trailer is a converted 142H long-base tractor unit I had built for a Steel Haul that I was supposed to use but did not. The boom is from a kid's RC toy digger I bought at a cheap store. I had planned on using it as a load for my heavy hauler rig, but the amount of work I had to do on it to get it looking right, would have taken me ages. So I opted to salvage what I could and use the parts for something useful. So now I had a use for the boom. [smile] I added hydraulics using soldering iron wiring and styrene tubing. I wanted it to look alive. The trailer is the Italeri curtain trailer kit. I only used the chassi and bottom half of it. I then scratch built the extra floor and added tie-downs.

 Hope you like the results. Thanks for looking. Lots of detail pics:

Wow
that's the best model I've see on this forum. Not just the best automotive I'm talking best at any subject and any scale. Do you have any build pics of it? I'd love to see how you went about achieving the fit and finish. I'm assuming you will be entering it in to various model shows and competitions so good luck with that.....if not why not you should.

Thank you kindly. That was a nice thing to say Pete. Unfortunately no WIP. I did not have time for that as I was n a hurry to get it finished.

Amazing, just amazing! Don't know if I would be able to tell the difference between your model and the real thing.

Here is the digger I took the boom from. I bought it at a toy cheap store. Before all the bells and whistle were added.

until I spotted the plinth I thought the first pic was a reference shot of the real thing. I'm lost for words. [thumb]

Kiting...Very impressive build utilizing a toy boom as the transport cargo.  Nicely done especially the weathering.
