Thanks for your comments. I too have wondered why Sword never produced a truck to go with the trailer.

Well Claus, since the truck is Canadian, maybe the color combo was inspired by the Red Green show.

Thanks CAW.

Than is another top shelf rendering. Good work.

Why Sword never produced a tractor is a legitimate question.

I can answer why we never made a tractor for that trailer...

We were only making Mack Granite's and GM Smith had every other mack in its fleet but the Granite at the time. The owner did not want us to make something that did not exist.

So no Tractor for the GM Smith Trailer...
