Thank you very much for kind comments! I appreciate it.

This truck and trailer just look good together. I'm working on the same combo, in blue and white... I hope mine turns out as nice as yours.

...i hope, you make a "newer" truck? ;)

It has a very natural look to it, so much so that it could be the real thing. Did you also include the smell? :wacko:

:lol: no, it doesn't smell like it looks.

The tires that you used look slightly-larger than the kit-supplied tires; do you know where or what kit those tires came from? Are they resin?[...]

Sorry for late responde. The wheels were in the box with the truck. I think, they are the original ones, because my "GMC" (looks like this one) has the same wheels. Perhaps, they look larger while i painted them?
The new Titan (reissues) has the same wheels, also the Ford Stake Truck.

Thanks again for your comments ;)

Beautiful weathering! This rig looks like it has about  300,000-400,000 miles on it. Perfect.

I'm just seeing this now Dominik. Another fantastic build. I can almost smell it. Looks like it's been through a winter.

I saw your work and it threw me back to when i got out of the Navy the first time and went to work for a trucking company back in Colorado. I used work on rigs like that when they contracted to do private repairs for owner/operators. I got into some really grungy cabs doing that work. Congradulations on that masterful model.

Thank you buddies,

Thank you for comments and nice storys.

always funny to hear from "storys, the life told". because such trucks i never saw in my life. Never in germany - think they change them all 5 years to have no old looking trucks... :(

Charles, can you explain for me? I dont understand what you mean.

Its an awesome build! I was just wondering, looking at the picture with the cab tilted, there is no gear shift tower. Did you build it with an automatic transmission!?

Ahhhh...Charles - this was my stupid moment...

now i know what you mean! I never took a thought on the transmission. There is no gearshift tower - thats a really good point! 

This kit has no. Is a automatic transmission possible? available?

 

Thank you Alessandro!

I know the KW Aerodyne had an automatic. It still had kind of a shift tower. I've built both the Titan, and Astro. They both had gear shifts. Still, Thats a really awesome job!!!
