White Road Commander day cab

Post by Gary Walker on Sun 10 Jul 2011, 8:36 pm

Modelling this one after a real truck that was operated in the late 70's by Clutha, who owned & operated the coal mines in the Burraganong Valley near Camden, NSW. This truck has been restored, & surfaced at the recent White truck muster at Kyabram in Vic.

Just some chassis components, I'll know what when I see it. Have to get onto Nigel & see how he's going with our conversion parts.
