That is magnificent Gary. The amount of work in that truck is mind boggling. Is it based on a real Australian Western?

The amount of work in this one is amazing, especially when you see it in the flesh.

Thanks guys, it's based on the current Western Stars, but the color scheme is a twist on one from an old Kenny Aerodyne. I've built a "copy'' of that truck as well, will post some pic's.

Farrrk, thats good, as are the rest of your builds. Makes me want to get away from rods for a while and built some trucks again. Last one was about 12 years ago. Lindsey Bros LTL 9000, won a prize at Wagga Wagga. Only thing I ever won.

Thanks fat141, I combined the best of both(rods & trucks) with my custom Pete. I remember your Lindsey Bros Ford, really nice build & well deserved win. Cheers, Gary.

Thanks for the comments fella's. Jamie, yeah the bonnet is an Auslowe conversion. I'm currently doing a second Constellation, have shortened the bonnet & will be a twin steer rigid tautliner. Thinking of similar paint scheme but reverse colour's.

Wow. That's an awesome amount of work there. Auslowe must love you, there is a million dollars worth of accessories on the truck. Seriously impressive. Out of my league and definitley out of my budget. bigthumbsup
