Looks great. I can see it as a dusty ol' road train. I've got a few of these, and plan to build one of them near the end of the year as an NQX road train for the Father-in-law. bigthumbsup Can't wait to see it finished. popcorn

Yeh, I thought you might, it looked very familiar in the photo of the real truck. It's great to see it mounted without all the body work surrounding it. Will make it an unusual subject. I'll stay tuned. popcorn twothumbsup
