Awesome, very nice and clever work using household items, this is a nice build especially considering the lack of available aftermarket stuff. Great work!

Very, very nice work...Especially on the interior...Although there's superb detail throughout, I find the interior to be most pleasing to myself...Very, very, nice work...

Working on a twin turbo sure proved to be a headache.

If you can find any info on a cat 3408 twin turbo your lucky. I did find some info on it and heres what it's going to look like.

It looks like I might have made an error in my measurements I cant't close the hood the exhaust pipes out of the turbos are to wide. Back to the drawing board.

Rob,

The wood inserts are made from a sheet of veneer that I found at Michaels arts and crafts store in Richmond in the model supplies and paints section.

I just stained the veneer and put lots of wood clear coat on it.

Thanks Kenny, I'll have to look for that the next time I am in Michaels. Do you think it may be to big for 1/25th?

 

Truely though, you are a master builder. I was looking at your Camaro and it is equally as nice.

Rob,

I don't think that it is too big for 1/25 scale.

I think that it was birch and it has a real small grain on it.
