I would like to share with you a Peterbuilt Mack Truck and Trailer which I have just completed. It is by far the biggest toy I have made this far. I enjoyed building it and was quite thrilled with the tambour tipe of door at the rear of the trailer. The box type trailer is made of maranti. The wheels were made using mansonia. This is not a nice wood to work with as it has a horrible smell and extremely difficult to get a nice finish on the thread of the wheels. I cannot take any credit for the John Deere "Big Boy Toys" on the side as that was lazer cut for me by a good friend. Dolf

WOW!!!! That is awesome. So many details to take in. That back door is pretty cool. The horns on the top, straps on the gas tank, different color taillights.... great job and the wood looks great.
