WOW!!!!!! i am blown away by this!!

I just looked through your progress in the other thread.......that is incredible jeremy! The doors had to be hard to cut open, the "A" pillars are sooooo thin, but you did a great job, and that frame! wow....just incredible. i dont know what else to say. way beyond my scratchbuilding ability man.
all i can say is keep it goin, i will definetely be watching this one! more more more! LOL


cheers!

Thanx Bryan I appreciate that.This build is mainly to see how far I can take my modelling abilities.Plus it gives me a good idea of what my dream truck will look like someday.
