Wow, that Challenge mixer is a rare kit. It's good to see one get built instead of being someones retirement plan.

Good looking and well detailed truck. I drove an old internatioanal R190 mixer part time early 80's. Everyone should experience this once in their lifetime!

Dave nice work on both your Autocars they look very real. I'm currently working on one now that's going to be a Center Point Engery ......... Truck. Is there anything that I will need to look out for on the Autocar.
