The tractor is almost done. Still experimenting with different weathering techniques and some more detailing. I have been working on the trailer for the Scania 142H long based chassi for some time now. So far this is where I am. I also toned down some of the weathering on the passenger side. Still have a little toning down near the windshield as well.*

The trailer was scratch built and it is 90% complete. I have to add more details and a bit more subtle weathering around the trailer. I tried to make it look somewhat outdated by design but yet have a kinda modern feel to the rest of the overall look. I decided on the mix color combo; has the trailer, had been painted unprofessionally several times during it's hard course life. Secondly, I wanted it to be different and stand out.

I am making the precast concrete slabs that will eventually be placed on the trailer when done..I am experimenting with various materials. The ones you see in the pics are made from poster boards. We will see what I end up using. The trailer has rest mounts for four precast slabs, which in turn can double up on each mount depending on thickness of the precast slab.

So I hope you like the trailer and the overall look of this tractor/trailer combo so far.
