Keworth T600 & Woodchip Trailer - By Jim Billington

This rig from Jim Billington features a tractor built from a Herpa T600A. Jim added a chain locker/headache rack from his parts box. The auxiliary axle was fabricated from a Herpa axle and chrome wheels and Evergreen styrene for the fenders. The trailer is a 53 foot ribbed side woodchip hauler that is completly scratchbuilt from Evergreen styrene. Jim used axles and chrome wheels from Herpa. The vinyl mud flaps and the safety stripe are A-Line. The load is fine sawdust from a cabinet shop. The trailer was painted Chinese Red from Accupaint and the ribs were hand painted Aluminum.
