Another Teresi masterpiece. Pure and simple. The details make this one into a great subject, and it easily lends itself to some fun photography with diorama elements. Great job, John, and congratulations. Again and again.

I'm just glad this isn't Harry's "Real or Model" thread ... I wouldn't know how to vote! You've surpassed yourself, John! Unusual subject done incredibly well!

Incredible job John. You didn't miss a trick on this. Right down to the misspelling of Ft. Lauderdale. Absolutely fantastic.

John you amaze me more and more with every build. I saw it in the workbench area and thought it was such a cool idea that I told even my non model kit buddies about it. I know a bunch of people have already said this, but you can't tell when the pictures of the real truck stop.....I guess that's why you wrote that in capital bold letters :lol: John amazing job and you truly are a inspiration to us all.

THE FIRST 3 PHOTOS ARE OF THE REAL 1:1 TRUCK......



You had to write this text, because no one can otherwise see, which one is Real and which one is Model? :lol:

Once again, truly amazing build. B)

John, there is so much detail, on this build, I don't know where you could go the extra mile to more detail into your next build. Outstanding work. I love to see your models.
