Freightliner FLD120 Truck Tractor - By Jim Groeneweg

This spectacular model is a semi-scratchbuilt Freightliner FLD120 from Jim Groeneweg. The cab is cut down from a COE kit, the hood, grille, side fairings, and bumper were scratchbuilt. Additionally, Herpa wheels and modified sleeper, and an Athearn modified frame was used to complete the truck tractor. The trailer is Walthers' 48' Stoughton with sliding tridem (60" spread) with Herpa wheels. A spectacular model indeed!
