Another excellent effort Col, your quality of work and your finishes are 2nd to none.
I applaud you for not taking the "out of the box" route.

Used to be a mob in town here back in the eighties that had all their number plates held on with wing nuts on a fleet all of the same make......So same plate on 2 different things does have a 1:1 history.  Nice LTL, tri pig would also suit this era like Slades from Sydney mid to late 80's.

Wow, the Ford looks like a 1:1. Amazing work, the lights, front and back are awesome!
Fantastic work with all the scratch building.

Nice work here Col, going to look the business behind the LTL!. Are you working off an actual trailer, plans or just making it up as you go? Reason I ask is that the hoist in my quad sits a fair bit further back and actually slopes forward quite a bit when lowered. I'm told this is so it can have longer stages and therefore less stages in the hoist where a vertical mount needs more stages to reach the same height. This isn't a criticism in any way, just me wondering out loud. Our 2 axle has the hoist pretty much where yours is. Thinking of something similar with a V8 Valueliner.
