Billmeyer & Smalls trucks

Ted,
I built the trucks for the combine on the Billmeyer & Smalls pattern with the "U" pedestal. They came out rather nice. All the wood is done in oak, and instead of painting the wood I varnished it. The steel parts, like journal boxes, pedestals, springs etc. are all painted a dark brown but are pinstripped with red lines. I had no color pattern by which to paint them so I figured that as long as they looked appropriate it should be alright. As it is, I think these trucks came out looking really sharp. I only hope that I can get them under the car before I have to refinish them again!
Dan
