Derek,- Thank you kindly for the compliment. That model is over 1.2 metres, ( 4ft. ) in length x 175mm, ( 7" ) wide and set to, 1:15 scale for realism. The owner is a, ( wait for it ),- a Fifty year old, " Kid," who drives a real one of similar shape.

Although I drill all the location holes for the LED lights an Electronics mate of mine does the actual lights & wiring as he knows what he's doing more than me.

For anyone interested, the truck is based on an Australian T908 Kenworth sleeper, hauling a flat-deck tri-axle semi,- also for any woodworker interested, ( & I don't wish to step on anyones' toes here ),- I am in the process of drawing up Woodworking Plans for our Aussie Big Rigs, & Road Trains;- simply ask for more info.

John Kinch,- ( & anyone else interested ),Have the 1:20 scale plan almost completed to build a 1988 Series 2 Mack Superliner,- just some final artwork to add, then down to the materials list, & the detailed assembly instructions, It is the first of my New Series titled, " Big Rigs, " which will initially just be , 1:20 scale wooden models, and later, a range of larger, 1:15 scale models too with heaps more detail, plus the option of fitting working LED lights. As each plan is drawn actual size, & with actual size templates, etc., they cannot be transmitted by email as the templates & artwork becomes distorted & out of scale, therefore it is worldwide delivery by Air Mail only at this stage. Simply message me for more info.

** ( If allowed ),- I would love a Distributor/Agent in the UK region, as also have my own range of 50 Toy individual Plans, along with a range of Funny Signs & Witty Expressions woodworking Plans;- If anyone would be interested simply message me and can work out a business arrangement.

***( If allowed ),- Am also on Facebook,- type, " Genuine Australian made wooden model road trains & big Rigs, " onto the searchbar
