Nice. Good job on the door lettering. Is it a decal, or did you hand paint it?

Awesome work !!  I really like it when a truck is modeled after a 1:1. I have a few that I want to build, modeled after the ones my father-in-law drove.

Thanks everyone!

I didn't use any decals on this build at all. Everything was actually done with spray paint. I cut a very small stencil out of tape and layed it over the doors, then sprayed a few light coats of white over it to get the door lettering.

Hey KJ how did you do your stainless on that reefer?

 

I started with two glue bombs that I had bought, one was a great dane reefer, the other was a fruehauf van trailer. I cut the ribbed sides off of the fruehauf, then cut the sides off of the great dane leaving the front, back, top side rails, and bottom side rails. I filed the ribbed fruefauf sides to fit the great dane and glued them in place. Then I painted the whole trailer "aluminum" silver. After that was dry I went over all of the parts that are supposed to be stainless with bare metal foil. That trailer wasn't quite done in those pics, but it was mostly done.
