--------Fair warning! The following contains an OPINION!-------
I'm not trying to step on any toes or start an arguement but... others have commented and as a 'Truck Modeler', I feel like I must as well...
My opinion: The Ford/FL conversion looks OK to me. No, it's not perfect, John even admits to that in the build thread but, it WORKS! It was built for his Father, not for this board and I'll bet it was very well received. I know that I couldn't have done any better on that cab conversion, myself. Having closely followed the build thread, I can really appreciate the effort that went into finishing this beast. I look forward to your next project!

This build, along with some of your other builds I've seen, amazed me for the obvious but the biggest (and least noticed) is the way everything looks "real", not rusted or worn out but USED, some grease and oil stains, rubber and smoke distressed areas, as if the builds were real and well looked after but about a year old.
I'm very humbled by your talent and am learning from an excellent "teacher".

I have seen many models, plastic and diecast made by large companies that didn't come that close to replicating the real vehicle.
Love your work,
