Hi Guys n gals
I have finally completed the Peterbilt and dragster.
you might notice that I made a couple of changes to Johns plans.
I changed the wheels on the dragster, the rear are 1” thick and 2 1/4” diameter and the front are 3/4” thick and 2” diameter.
also made changes to the truck n trailer, reduced the wheels and fenders to 1” thick as I felt they looked too big in the plans.
when I do it again I will also change the body of the tractor unit and make the space between the chassis rails about 1” wider.

cheers. Andy F93F31C3-CAA9-4D3E-BFE1-0987D2C347D7.jpeg  8528C384-F275-4454-AE2E-0706D947A1EC.jpeg  22534C5E-FBC4-42C2-905F-ECE11B8DAF27.jpeg  F2B8ED00-EEA0-4AD0-A0A8-DD246C245581.jpeg

Hi guys
thank you so much for your comments, I have enjoyed the challenge on this one, particularly the mods I worked on. We have a Christmas craft fair in November so I will do this again for that

I don’t have the equipment to make multi units, but will certainly make a couple.
thanks for your comments

This set is a perfect example of fine toymaking. The selection of woods is really beautiful. And the home-made wheels add a touch of realism. Thanks for the great photos. This is such a thrill to see today.
