Promoting Excellence in HO Scale Vehicle Modeling

Australian Livestock B-Doubles Road Train - By Viv Ireland

Here's one of Australian modeler Viv Ireland's recent projects, a Ford Aeromax with D-double cattle "crates." This unit measures out at 115 ft, much longer than b-dubs are allowed in Australia but its running on "his" roads so he says he gets to make the rules! Viv cut five feet from of the lead trailer and added that to the B trailer. He also added an extra axle to the B trailer and scratchbuilt the tri-axle for the A trailer. The model is finished with Tamiya spray paint with decals on the prime mover from an International cabover kit.
