I cannot comment on how exact your reproduction is but the casting looks really good.

Can you post some more detail closeups about the winch and the bed's wood(?) structure?

Also, the tires might look more realistic with same sag, I think.

The trailer looks great. And like stated above a little sag in the tires would complete it.

The Daimond T in your pictures pulling the trailer is 1/50 scale, so the total combination looks odd and out of proportion.

Are you going to make a model of a tractor to go with it ?

Carol , I will rework the tires, thank you .
Regarding the Diamond is an sure 1/48 scale model - is an old model ( 1997-98 the master ) when I was associate at Wespe Models - this model was ordered by Olivier from Quarter Kit.
The trailer was made with the 1/72 scale drawing from Airfix Magazine - if the drawings was wrong my model is wrong too.
I was think to make as tractor the CMP cab No 12 - 6x4 Gantry truck or the Mack LMSW-23 Recovery truck ( this last one I produce at 1/35 scale - so I can remade in 1/48 )
For Cristian some close vue pictures - the assembled model I was send in UK to be show at MAFVA London show last weekend .

Both tractors sound good, but the Mack is my favourite.
Can't wait to build one in "my" scale.

Keep up the good work Dan
