Those decals scream;"LOOK AT ME!!!!!" They are definitely attention getters, which means that nobody should have to use the excuse,'But I didn't see him...' I like it!

    I'm trying to be good
    0 warning points whatever that means.

Looks good. I would have cut the decal sheet and removed the flames. But now that I see it I'll have to put it on my must get list.

truck looks good, if you took off the flames and the tiger/lion whatever it is you would have a factory paint scheme.


I agree. The truck does look great though!

Very nice build, I would have probably left the decals off if I was building it, but seeing them fitted, they do look real good ....

Nice build. I would have liked it better without the flames. Other stripes are factory, I had white one with 3-tone blue stripes like these,400 cat 15 speed. oooh boy!

you did a great job on replicating the box picture..the flames look good

I might have left off the lion's head though...

I built a variation of the Freightliner Aerodyne minus the sleeper...a few years back...I can tell you, you did good...
