Hi i live in Norfolk in the UK i am 72 yrs old and i have been building model for going on 45 yrs,my main interest is 1/12 F1 cars and some older Le Mans cars,i am a marshal in the UK and also at Le Mans thats where the interest comes from.I thought i would try something a little different so i have built a couple of trucks and enjoyed it,i have recently been over to the USA and stayed with friends in Hood River Oregon and on our tours out and about i got the bug again and would now like to model a logging truck and trailer,if anyone knows of such a kit i would love to buy one,i recently came upon this site and thought it is a great way to chat to modelers who like the same things  Many thanks  Mel

Welcome!! AMT does a log trailer in 1/25, it is out of production but not hard to find on the internet. as for a power unit you can use a number of AMT kits including the like the Western Star or International Paystarand for a few.  AITM does resin cab conversions to do purpose built power units that use AMT Autocar, Peterbilt or Kenworth Chassis'
