Hi Roger, that is another fine model.
I’m sure you could just copy and paste your facebook link onto this page. Thanks for sharing these models for us to see.

Pjonesy;- Dumb question,- How does one copy & paste as am NOT real good with computer stuff,- have more disasters than successes with most computer programs, or put it this way what is, ” simple,” for someone else, is a, ” nightmare ” for me !!!!
Wooden model making & wood craft design so much easier for me than all the computer stuff !!

Jim;- Thank you for the compliment, & for the welcome to Lumberjocks.

Wooden Models of Aussie Big Rigs & Road Trains is something I enjoy doing as there’s heaps of Aussie Truck Drivers who enjoy my work, & have either ordered & received their wooden model, or are on my very long list of waiting clients.

Over the coming weeks shall be showing some spectacular wooden model complete with working LED lights,- actually will be adding another project today.

”a very distinctive sound that one could hear coming from miles away !!”
