That freightliner is on my list again, I tried to build it once before when I was still pretty new at it, and that cab gave me a lot of troubles.

Must say, your Old Gold Cummins looks pretty nice!


Thanks for the compliments Karak. I think it's a nice kit, just take your time and test fit everything before gluing.

Hi Jacobus,
Yes, those are the classic artist, Red Sovine - Freightliner Fever / Teddy Bear / Phantom 309, Dick Curless - Tombstone Every Mile, Jimmy Martin- Widow Maker, Red Simpson - I'm a Truck / Diesel Smoke Dangerous Curves and one of my personal favorites Dave Dudley - Six Days on the Road. I live 20 miles Northwest of Pittsburgh, PA, so I have literally pulled out of Pittsburgh and rolled down the Eastern Seaboard :) And the newer stuff is pretty good too like Alabama- Roll On 18 Wheeler, Merle Haggard - Theme from 'Movin On', Ronnie Milsap - Prisoner of the highway, Jason Aldean - Asphalt Cowboy. The list just goes on and on :)

Things have been kind of hectic the last few days and I've gotten zero accomplished on the Freight shaker. :( I'm hoping to set down tomorrow and make a little more progress on it, but until then
"It said take immediate delivery On this '75 White Freightliner truck, We'll sell or swap for a hide-a-bed an' thirty five bucks Call one four O, ring two and ask for Bob" :blink: :D
