I am building a replica of a Carolina freight truck. I took the current issue White Frieghtliner and took about 3/4 of an inch out of the cab and frame. I removed all the rivets off the roof and around the side seams. I am replacing them with. The micromark O-scale decal rivets. I have finished the roof and am still working on the sides. The spokes are from the Diamond Reo kit. The first photo is the real truck...
