Blue Circle Southern Cement Tractor-Trailer - By Uli Heufs


Uli Heufs built this beautiful Blue Circle Southern bulk cement transport truck as found them around Melbourne, Australia. Uli photographed several Blue Circle rigs while on vacation in Australia. The tractor is an Athearn Kenworth W900 on a shortened Promotex chassis and parts left over from other projects. Beefbars (or "roo bars") are scratchbuilt. The trailer was built from two old Kibri bulk trailers with much of the framework and accessories kitbashed from parts out of his parts bin. The decals are by Revell. By the way, the picture in the background is the King's Canyon in Central Australia (from Uli's own photo) and the sand on which the truck sits is original sand from there.
