Beautiful! The work on the tractor is excellant, while the trailer begs to be duplicated for the masses!!!

Thanks for the comments. Jim, we are working on something to see if we can reproduce the trailer. Fabio, I heat the plastic in warm water and use a hair dryer to make the bends.

A really excellent job mate. One point and it could be the pics the black steering wheel looks extra shiney. Is it meant to be this way?

Yes the steering wheel on the M-52's were shiny. At least they were shiny on the ones I used to drive.
