Built this one about 5 years ago...I wanted to add a little more detail to it, but I guess I got bored....One day I'll finish it, but this is the jist of it....What I did do was add another drive axle, a crane from the Italeri truck accessories package, some fenders from the AMT Paystar mixer, the dumper from the AMT Payhauler, a mostly scratchbilt low lowder, and a few other things...I hope you enjoy this one...

This WS is sure well equiped for working hard. Nice rig! When I see one of these kits I'll buy it for sure. I really dig that first pic, it looks real!
