Default 56 Ford Semi

Well now that my yet unnamed construction company has enough dump trucks I need a light duty semi for local hauling.... And I just happen to have another 56 Ford cab and since the Semi and dump truck are sorta similar I just made 2 of the basic frames as I went along... the wheel base is a a little different but the concepts are the same...
I cut down some "U" channel about 12 1/4" long,

Made a set of off-set hinges so the cab would set closer to the wheels

Get the front wheels centered in the wheel arch

The track looks pretty good... these 56 cabs are just a little narrower than the newer Dodge cabs...but it will be fine

and both axles mocked up

I'll get the fifth wheel and motor mocked up this week ...
