Transtar Eagle2 rigid with stock crate and three axle dog trailer.
This one has been converted to rhd including the steering and gear stick/mount. The GM was replaced with a Cummins. Spider wheels from an ERTL S/Line. The flat tops are modified ERTL extendable trailer tops. The trailer chassis is also a modified extendable frame. The stock crates are scratch built using Evergreen kit.
Hope you like it.








Cheers.

Nice work. It took me a moment to realise it's a model.

Cheers, Jarrod.

Goodness I think I had a bit of old timers, when the fork lift ran over me and busted my leg in the 70,s you may have driven the 4070 with a little badge to show to uniform persons and they would tell you to move on!!!!. I may be wrong and admit if I am, !!
