G-Town, I looked at your pictures. Very cool stuff. Can you describe the process of building these models? This might be something fun to do with my son.

Thanks 6S.

Considering I started building when I was 11, yes I can help with that, but I think best done by way of verbal communication. Please send an email to my Spam Gourmet account and we can exchange phone numbers; TT.gtown@spamgourmet.com .

By the way...I have an OD pup set I started working on and one of those Wabash Dura-plate HD P&D shorties with the platform lift on the door. My only issue on this...I will need to back date to a Columbia day-cab. There are presently no decent, economical HO representations of a Cascadia day cab.

Day Cab:

A tractor which does not have a sleeper berth attached to it. Normally used for local routes where drivers go home every night.

P&D:

Pickup & Delivery

Local drivers that stay around their area, usually within 100 mile radius of a terminal, picking up and delivering loads.

LTL (Less Than Truckload) carriers for instance will have Linehaul drivers and P&D drivers. The P&D drivers will deliver loads locally from the terminal and pick up loads returning to the terminal. Linehaul drivers will then run truckloads from terminal to terminal.

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

Those two trucks were built over 15 years ago and each took about 40 hours to complete. I don't usually keep track of time on a project...so that's a SWAG.

I find time on my day(s)off. I am not OTR , have greater flexibility, so many times I can take my 10 at a local Walmart and Uber home for the night.

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.
