Freightliner FLD120 & 53' Utility - By Jim Groeneweg

Jim Groeneweg built this great Freightliner FLD120 "condo" truck tractor and 53' Utility reefer to resemble Moznik's units seen in his hometown. The truck tractor was built from Jacob's Models new resin cab kit mounted on a stretched Athearn frame. The A-Line 53' Utility is only changed at the suspension and a Herpa Thermo-King unit was added. The suspension is Lonestar Models' air-ride 72" spread tridem fitted to the A-Line slider rails (which were lengthened). Herpa wheels and A-Line safety stripes; detail decals from Pen Bay and Moznik, Moznik decals from Ken Goudy. Great looking truck!
