A while back a friend loaned me a book on trucks thru the years, in browsing in it I ran across a picture of an auto transport truck of the 40's. I was captivated by it , it was an enclosed trailer, I decided I needed one. here is the progress on it, the cab is a modified Athearn Kenworth ( at least I think it was a Kenworth) , it was far too late a model to fit the period. I have attempted to back date it with a different front end & adding a sleeper cab .Please understand it is a bit generic & I was not trying to exactly duplicate any perticular make of truck . The trailer is pretty much a duplicate of the one I saw a picture of. I think I'm going to change the truck frame, this was from some diecast semi & at first I thought it would be better than the Athearn frame & wheels , but the wheels are too toy like & besides the frame is too long. They don't show up that well ( crappy digital cameras-- no real close up ability) but the trailer has a bunch of rivets made with my homemade rivet machine I had posted a while back.
