A scale modelling company is interested in creating both the Australian Ford Tractor and McGrath Trailer - based on the photos from the National Military Vehicle Museum in Adelaide. This is one of the earlier vehicles used on 'the track' during early WWII.
To try and make this happen dimensions are needed and more detail photos are required - a handbook if it exists or similar.
Its only 1/35 but there aren't too many WWII Australian road transport specific models out there - a suitable tribute to a crucial part of the war effort.
Apologies if there is any other post that is similar to this - I couldn't see one other than a dated one relating to the preparation of a history on Mc Grath trailers that seemed to stop.

Thanks for that Swishy - I saw that in the previous McGrath post - That looks like a slightly different variation - the open top cab and open doors - the NMVM one has a hard top cab with factory removed doors. Both fantastic. Do you know where that one is?
