I built this Peterbilt 389 “Short Hood” Tractor and Rogers 60 Ton trailer for my Best Friend David after suffering from some PTSD related issues. He encouraged me to build this when I wasn’t sure I actually could. The truck and trailer are over 6 feet long combined. The set has over 400 pieces. It is constructed mostly of Cherry and Walnut and features a detachable neck and working flip axle. It was a blast and very much a challenge.
