Early CAD of Tonkin Replicas’ Cat Model 988k

This was the early (not final) CAD that shows you how will build the Cat model 988k. Each color represents a different part. We're sure that most know that CAD stands for Computer Aided Design.  Using CAD rather than working from drawing we have reduced production time as any changes to the design we've created can be done much more quickly and efficiently.  Another important feature of our CAD design photo is the very professional - polished look.  It shows how the released 988k will appear when it is finished in production.

Tonkin Replicas' Legency of Triple Trailers: Connecting to Future Lines


A couple months back, there was an interesting conversation on Tonkin Replicas’ (TR) Facebook about the use or lack of Triple Trailers on the road now days.  This conversation caused me to start thinking about whether Tonkin Replicas had built any Triple Trailer replicas.  Before I did any research into TR’s triple trailer legacy, I decided I needed to research the history of these mighty trailers.  One the first things, I found out is triple trailers can stretch up to 105 feet in length.
