Autocar logger

Recommended Posts

This is a truck that I received in a trade deal and has a neat story behind it. I started building the truck and scratchbuilding a lot of things on it. I got to the headache rack and couldn’t quite get it to look right and posted an ad on another site looking for a rack from the kit. The next day the guy that traded me the kit pm’d me and asked if I’d mind if he could tinker with one and try it? I was like sure! A week later I find a box in the mail with the headache rack in it! Kind of kool that he had a hand in bringing it full circle and finished the build off with his work!! 

Autocar with back half of frame added, drop axle is a Peterbilt front axle, bunks and most of the trailer is scratched, trailer is fully articulated, extends, flexes etc. 

Added wet kit for possible grappler if they needed one, I do have logs cut so it has a load, thought I had pics of it loaded. Have to look for them...

Super job on the logger & trailer!!!!  What did you use for the hinge-pins on the bunks????

DJ

 

The pins are just the straight pins that you’d find in a dress shirt. Drill, insert and cut them flush on the other side!

Dr.  Is it going to be next? I have a DC tractor almost done I think it will be next up. I like how you reversed the logger stripe.

That one may be awhile! LOL, I have my heavy hauler combo I'm working on now. Then I have the BJ and the Bear rig on the side burner waiting to go...
