Title: Freightliner 114 SD Dumper
Post by: Kurt_H on March 02, 2019, 06:56:49 AM
The chassis is by Promotex and I lengthened it for about 5mm (2/10") to bring the dump body, out of two Promotex parts, nearer to the front. The cabin is built from a 3D-print and  heavily reworked. The rear wheels come from A-line and the front wheels with wide tires from Dennis Aust.

Very good job! I like the tag / glider axle and the natural bang boards. :)

Fantastic job Kurt, very interesting cab, I haven't seen it before. I had kinda started one years ago but never got that far. The build is great, nicely done, extra axle looks cool.

Jim.
