The Utility 2000R was a model of refrigerated trailer produced from the mid-80's into the mid-00's and was the predecessor to the highly successful 3000R model.
This specimen is a 40'x96" with fixed spring suspension and a roll-door – a stark contrast to most of the mod trailers out there. Enjoy!
It's been released and is available on Steam Workshop. Development continues. ;)
This is another released, ongoing project. The trailer itself is pretty much complete, except for some tweaks here and there.
Most of the work I have left is converting a few more SCS cargo models and adding a few more of my own. I also intend to add a sidekit eventually.
Here's a nice, common-sense 50-ton hydraulic gooseneck. It has a beaver tail for over-the-trunnion loading, double-acting ramp springs, and swivelling lashing rings.
I plan on whipping up a few medium-sized equipment models (motor-graders, excavators, etc) as well.
Right now, it looks like the finished poly count should be less than 50,000 without a load and not counting wheels.
The SuperVan 90 was a model produced by Trailmobile Canada at the Brampton, ON plant around the mid-80's. A few carriers in Quebec and the Maritime provinces had some in their fleet, including Maritime-Ontario.
The specimen I'm making is a 48ft x 102in, 1+2 arrangement that would have mostly been used for heavy things like paper rolls, automotive/machine components, and letter-mail.
The cabin is more or less finished. Most of my attention right now is focused on hardware and under-cab details.
I've gotten the major parts of the hood and cab to a point where I'm happy with them. I will be remaking pretty much all of the windows, but I've done that enough times that I'm well-practiced. I also intend to rework - if not remake - the fenders. The interior is progressing now that I have enough reference pictures to move forward. I think the nicest part of making trucks of this age is how simple the interiors are!
Once I finish this, I'll be using the cab to make a 351/281. Then I'll convert the cab to a Unilite for the later 350/280/351/281/358/288 and possibly the early 359/289. I think the cab was also used in the 350/280 COE... The Unilite doors are also used in the 352 and 352H models. Basically, I'm intending to make the entire 1950-1970ish line of Peterbilt on-highway tractors.
The Astro 95 represents a huge portion of GM's involvement in the heavy duty truck market, lasting the better part of twenty years with only minor changes. A considerable number are still in service!
The Bighorn was my third model ever (though it was concurrently modeled with the Scot) and it really shows. After having completed a few models since, I feel I'm ready to tackle this one again and maybe do this legendary truck some justice.
I've restarted this project, adapting it from Jon's 379 instead of doing the cab from the ground up.
Colonel and I are working on a fresh conversion of Jon's 379-119 and -127 to American Truck Simulator with a full complement of standard cab and Ultracab sleepers in late 90's and early 2000's livery.
I may still finish converting a few of Jon's Petes to PTTM, but that's no longer a priority.
