You guys are too kind.

I should tell you I built this 15 years ago. The #45 on the hood is how old I was then. 60 now  :huh:

I'll see if I can come up with a tutorial on how to do the conversion. It wasn't that bad.

I sold this several years ago,hopefully they still have it.

Here's the reference picture I used then. not sure why I made the bed different.

Fantastic! I've driven the real thing ('56 single axle version) and this takes me right there. So accurate, nothing stands out as out of scale or proportion. Great job on the Big Job.
