The redundant Toyrebel here, with yet another Hubley. This group has a different truck than my others and two more log trailers. The truck has separate grill assembly and the body detaches from the chassis instead of being riveted, less masking=easier painting. One of the trailers is the 10" #505 large one that I posted previously. The other is a 7" #493 that was made to go with 6" cab Hubley truck. This is my first small type Hubley, it's kind of cute and these smaller trucks seem to be more abundant and cheaper than the large rigs. I only know of one style smaller truck, there might be others. The truck will most likely go with my cabless flatbed. I'm going to give it the red treatment, all the flatbeds I've seen are red and they look good with this color. I got a complete set of vintage "logs" for my restored log trailer with it and a complete set of "milled logs" for junior. The seller didn't mention the wood or show pictures of it, so I was pleasantly surprised. I just love the aged look of the wood. Lawgs ain't supposed to look purdy, they're supposed look like lawgs! All of these new arrivals will have to wait until I'm finished with the truck/ lowboy/grader combo I'm in the process of restoring. I now have three log trailers and a small individual log truck. I guess I'll open up a logging/dowel company to finance my collecting habit. I always wind up with an extra truck or trailer and try to find another truck or trailer to complete a set. It's a vicious unending cycle.
