    it may have been the angles, but to my way of thinking his scale is off on the trailer length... If my memory is correct, the longest trailer is 55' and the tractors are about 25' or 30' with about 8' or so under the trailer...my son drives for Schneider and his truck is a short nose PB (I think)... and the long nose Peterbilts are even longer I think.

    Either way, it was a cool idea and pretty neat little toy... it's waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay beyond anything I could do...

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
