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...

Thanks to all for the wonderful comments.
Big truck needs a big turbo wing.

It's time for some more updated pics.
I finished doing the top of the sleeper.It took a bit but I think that I can live with it.
I rased the cab roof as well.
I'm now currently working on the twin turbos an will post them soon.
Thanks for the great comments as well.

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.

This is just an unreal build Kenny!
What did you use for the wood accsents in the dash and doors?

Looks good. This will be a great truck when finished.

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.

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.
