Nothing special huh? Well, for starters, it is the FIRST. Second, your Cat engine is yellow which is good. Third, you lengthened the frame, didn't you? And it looks fairly neat from a distance. So welcome to the scale truck world!

You are not alone! I was told in "therapy" last night by our our "Pete Guru", on another page, "There is no 12-step program - but there is a 20 step program that usually starts with assembling the engine block, then the chassis..etc.." Thanks Tim!!!!! Have fun!!!
