Euro Truck

I worked on this European truck for a long time, almost two years.  I  wanted the cabin to be able to tilt.  The problem was that the pivot point should not be visible.  I made two models to finally get the right result.  The used woods are mainly Yellow Poplar, Merbau, Oak, Esch and Beech. 


You can find the drawings on my website.

I received the necessary help from Alex AKA LBD.  Also this time he made a breakdown video. Alex also spends a lot of time on correction work. 

In addition, the axles are equipped with suspension, of course completely made of wood.

The trailer will follow soon

Thanks for watching. Comments are appreciated.

Below pictures of the first made one. Look for the differences with the second made one (see above or my website)

Size of the Euro Truck is approx. 40(L) x 20(W) x 28(H) cm.

I tried that ° tilt in SketchUp,

and my computer fell over.

Noticed you sneaked in a sunroof... not Aussie friendly with our UV.... keep it in Europe.

If your first cut is too short... Take the second cut from the longer end... LBD

Very cool. Great looking build.
One top Highway Primemover Jan but wouldn’t survive on the Aussie roads especially outback.
