That is huge. Must be about a foot and a half long. You will have to let us know how well it works when you get batteries. Nice find.

Just measured it, 31 inches! Must have a large motor as its die-cast and very heavy...especially with these on board.

So, with the tail gate down it is almost 3 feet long. If unloading or loading you will need about 3.5 to 4 feet to maneuver in. Wow, big model.

I am not familiar with these....does the motor propel the unit? If it is that large, so you will quite a bit of room to manuever......very nice!

Its come from a company called Radio Elecon in Hertford UK according to the warranty and instructions. Its supposed to have forward and rev. gears and engine sounds that kick in when the truck moves. Automatic coupling which raises the trailer legs and direction indicators...Doubtfull if much (any) of it works.

It would be a nice way to display some of your toys in a smaller area along with the carrier. I have a few carriers, some to redo, but they all have full loads.

I\'ve tried to bid on a couple of these on evilpay, and gave up. They are nice, but eat batteries for breakfast. Invest in NiCads or some other kind of rechargeable if you are going to run it. I\'d have jumped in earlier, just got back from a weeks worth of torture, er, vacation, camping and see I\'ve missed quite a bit.

No pics, left the camera home, along with my earplugs and MP3. Spent most of the second day drying out, don\'t go camping in monsoon season I told them....

Hey, all part of the experience. What were you fishing for. I usually went for Rainbow Trout or Chinook (Spring) Salmon.

Didn\'t do any fishing, though the lakes and rivers are full of Rainbow and German trout up in the Gila.

The Peterbilt you have is a second generation 359 with the big window cab. I\'m curious to see if you can make it run. I\'d still like to get my hands on one, eventually.

Nice bass, played a Gibson Ripper for a while back in the early 80s, thing was a bit too heavy, sounded great though.
