:lol: :lol: :lol:

No and no Andy. I did pull it out and knocked some of the dust off it and tried to finish up the CB mike, but it didn't work out well and before I lost all my marbles, I put it back on the shelf. Hopefully since it's getting cold here again, I may start up the finishing touches soon.

Hi everyone!! I sorta have an update to this build, but unfortunately no building has been done on this since I posted the last update. :( Life has not only gotten in the way of this build, but put it on a semi-permanent (pun intended!) hold. I was evicted from the house I and my ex fiancee had called home for 6 1/2 years back in December 2011 and unfortunately the truck and trailer has been living packed away in a box at a close friend's house ever since, and I have returned to driving (and living) on the road. Thankfully, though, I'm working on a dedicated account right now and getting a steadier income and me and my new love of my life and fiancee are planning on using the time and better pay on this temporary gig to get back into a regular life! We have a trailer back in WV that her mom is going to let us live in and eventually give to us, and we are working on getting a few minor repairs made so we can finally move into it and then we are going come off the road for good. My fiancee is going to finish the steps she needs to get her real estate license and then after that I will finally go back to school for my degree in computers like I wanted to do about a year and a half ago!

Anyway, what does this have to do with the build, you say?? Well, even though I'm about 600 miles away from the model, the model is always in my mind and I can't wait to get back to work on it! I even have a new mural for the back of the sleeper! Thanks to some patience and having my camera on multishot "burst" mode, I was able recently to get this awesome pic of my 1:1 on the outskirts of a thunderstorm in SC!

I plan on, after me and the better half get settled and I have my main computer (also at my friend's house) set back up, I'm going to edit the pic and take the 1:1 out and take a pic of the finished model and insert it in the 1:1's place. After I took the pic, I knew the pic would fit perfectly with the trucks lighting theme, and the name of the truck, which will be "Thunderstruck"!

No, she still has yet to get her license, but she is going to get a WV license, and from when she was going through training before some life issues got in the way for her, she said the WV license would be good for WV, OH, PA, and even SC and a few other states as well. She is planning on working around home in Wheeling, and once she gets everything sorted out, I'll have her get in contact with you!

Thanks, and I was planning on the name for a while, but I thought it would really fit after I came up with the idea to put the model in the pic! :D

Hmmm, I just might have to look up a pic of that, if for nothing else the name!

And don't hold yer breath for updates, you might not make it LOL!! :lol: :lol: :lol: Even though we have everything in the planning stages for getting off the road and me back into the model room (and the better half already said one of the three bedrooms is my model room!! :D ) it still may not be until after Christmas until I get any real work done. As long as I'm needed on the temporary dedicated account I'm running from here in SC, home will be devided between WV and SC. Only after the account doesn't need me will it be time to come off the road.

Thanks Dan, it was nice meeting you and everyone else tonight, and hopefully I can get time to stop by again, just without the 1:1 big truck being in the shop! :lol: Hopefully someday soon I can start working on this again as soon as I get time split between the 1:1 and the little ones.

Actually Dan, that isn't the largest sleeper on the market, it is only a 180" (since they measures sleeper length in inches) sleeper. The largest I have found, and will be the size of my next custom sleeper build, is a 230" sleeper like what is on this truck.

Yep, I'm chomping at the bit to get life back in order so I can spend some time with the ole girl again. I have some new goodies to put on her and some plans in store to try and make this baby a true largecar! :lol:

Well, my friends, I just wanted to give you all a small update on progress not necessarily on the build but more like life will soon allow me to resume working on this big baby again. I have been spending my weekdays with my 1:1 baby...

 

 082813111052_zps747dca0c.jpg

 

...and weekends (except for this one where I was sent to Florida instead of being home  :angry: ) moving into my new house (half a duplex) that I'm renting with my girlfriend Jennifer. I have slowly been moving the model collection out of storage and went to my friend's and finally brought the big Ford back home! :D It was good just to temporarily unpack her and mock her up for my friends i was staying with and Jen, none of them had seen it except for pics. I have some work to do in arranging my basement into my new model room, but the plus side is that there is already a work bench in the basement that just may become my new model bench. Stay tuned, and progress will be slow at the start because I don't have internet at the house yet, but as soon as I play a little catch up from the expense of moving in, internet will be on and then progress will hopefully get better, especially after I can get an order for some goodies from P&P Resin Works! :D
