While I was reading your post, I got into an allergy triggered sneezing fit, and let me tell you, laughing and sneezing at the same time is interesting. Needless to say, the Kleenex box was diminished appreciably!

Romell, even though I'm not a truck modeler (the last one I built was in the mid 70's for my brother; the AMT "Movin' On" TV show Peterbilt issue,) this is a wild build, and I'm enjoying your scratch building. Looking forward to seeing how you light it up.

I know exactly what you went thru Jim as I had a allergy triggered sneeze attack right before I made this reply, 20 sneezes in a row is no fun when tryin to have fun reading a funny comment. Thx for the compliments fellas and I think you owe Jim and I a box of Kleenex Wayne :)

Hey thx Rick and youre correct on one point I am a lil dingy for even attempting this build LOL! thx for the compliment bro!

herea a small update fellas I added the door trim to the cab because it wasnt very defined in the resin. I used Evergreen styrene strips to handle this job...

I like what you have done so far. I think hat the fabrication/scratch building is the best part of any build.

I will be more than happy to provide Kleenex, provided I am continued to be allowed to view this spectacle of a build.
