Built this one in about a month and a half....It's 98% done....Just got to finish the light bars, but it's done enough to post a few pics, though...

This one looks MASSIVE! I used to have this 1:16 Pete as a teen. Nothing to do with this one. You have done an impressive job, nice detailing, nice new parts, love the paint!

Thanks, Guys for your kind comments about my truck...I appreciate them....I wish I could build an RC model of this one, but like you said, Dave, that would just break me...And, no, Charles, the lights do not work.....As it was my first attempt at a 1/16 scale model, I kinda wanted to see it completed quickly, so my ambitions were not that high....But, once again, I appreciate all of you...

It was about a month and a half....It helps when you have a lot of styrene plastic around....Not afraid to make mistakes....
Went to a plastics supplier and picked up two 4' x 8' pieces of .060" styrene for like $20 a sheet and I've still got A LOT left....And I eyeball a lot of stuff...To me, if it looks right, it is right...Thanks for the interest, Doug...

WOW, cool, I like it as a wrecker but it also would look as a tractor.
