After more then a year this combo is complete now. In scale 1:13 this combo is completely build out of genuine Lego bricks (about 17.000). As an addition many where chromed afterwards in an electroplating process, becoming truly chromed.

 

This truck is mildly based on the fleet of Eilen trucking. The rig is a Peterbilt 379 with extended hood and C15 CAT engine, also heavily chromed. The trailer is a MAC half round enddump.

Looks like it was a tad bit harder to make then the Lego kits I had as a kid. Very nice job on that.

I have to agree with the rest its way cool but I have one question do you all use the clear coat before the windsheilds are put in or after the rig is completed then spray the clear coat.  Thanks for info.

I could not answer Marcus, As Lego does not really have proper genuine windows this size i don't use them. In fact i don't glue anything normally.

 

A new picture, with the trailer attached:
