I bought the plans for this semi trailer Mack truck model some time ago but never seemed to be able to find the time to make it at home, so it was ideal as my first project at the community shed.
It has been a test of patience and skill and while there are stores where you can buy ready-made wheels and axles and other components, I chose to build everything from scratch.
There is a lot of detailed work which can't be seen with the chassis and undercarriage for both the truck and the trailer. It has been both frustrating and satisfying so far and is a world away from my usual woodworking tasks.
