Canadian Trucks (my attempts)
#1
Hello,

by watching such TV series as "Highway Thru Hell" and "Heavy Rescue 401" on youtube, i saw a lot of trucks in Canada which were quite different from from their US conterparts.
This inspired me to kitbash some trucks as decorative pieces for put in modern era.

My first attempt was this heavy delivery reefer truck.
Cab and chassis are from Walthers, the box body and the reefer set were out of my truck grab box. The frame was cut and stretched by means of plastic profiles. Most models of rigid truck models are way too short.

This is the result.

Nice work on that truck, Lutz.   Applause Applause Applause  I wasn't aware that those TV programmes were available on youtube, but I guess that you could see just about anything there.

Right now, in Ontario at least, trucks are about the only road vehicles allowed to cross the otherwise closed U.S./Canada border, and the nearby bridges are filled with them.
As always, of course, freight trains also cross, but as far as I'm aware, no passenger trains.
