Scrap Tyre Haulage

Many thanks to all those modellers that sent me their leftovers.

Charles, Just another incredible build. As Rowan said, at 1st I also thought that you posted a picture of the real tire hauler to use for your inspiration. But I soon enough figured it out that it's another one of your super detailed truck models. Joel
