Arseny, hi,

To consider a purchase, I'd like to know if a truck or trailer fits into my modeled era. Might RailTT consider offering the year that a tractor was first produced? If so, my interest would escalate.

Hello, Brian.

Which truck/tractor do you mean? Hayes or some else?

As I know, Nikolay from RailTT performed some search by Google to find some info about his trucks and, first of all, pictures (photos).
I am not sure he can confirm exactly the month and year when the first truck was produced :wink: but if you search by Google "1955 Hayes Clipper", you'll find a lot of photos with this truck (if you are talking about Hayes)

For example:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/toadhollow ... 981743358/
http://www.kevinoke.com/gallery/America ... h_Columbia
http://www.athsvancouverislandchapter.c ... ent_id=405
etc.

What era do you model? I am sure that Hayes will be appropriate for mid- or late 1950s (or later), Mack R-serie will be good for late 1960s, International K-serie will be good for late 1940s or later, etc.

Arseny, the year in which a truck was first produced would be very helpful. But, if the photo of the scale model includes the 1:1 truck manufacturer's name and the 1:1 model name of the truck, it should be easy enough to google for information.

Brian, if you model era 1956-66, the Hayes Clipper truck will be undoubtedly suitable for you.
International K7 too.

Mack R-serie truck started in 1966, so it will be barely suitable for you - for 1966 only.

As for Kenworth, Freightliner and/or Peterbilt trucks - maybe it will be suitable for 1960s, but some more search is necessary. There were a lot of different versions...
