Hello: This is a Diamond Reo from AMT. I tried some new stuff. Stretched the frame and sleeper and tried two-tone paint. Also made fuel tanks from flat styrene. I also added the l- side stack,headache rack and spoiler. Other than that it's an ob build.100_0451_zpsb6b833e1.jpg100_0450_zps555e82e9.jpg100_0445_zpsd516ef7e.jpg100_0439_zpsb6cc8f4d.jpg100_0437_zpsecd3f0d8.jpg Thanks for taking time to look.

Nice looking DR Jeff. I think the color combo works quite nicely and the two-tone treatment is the perfect amount of flair.

The large (nice conversion btw) sleeper and custom, long-range fuel tanks tell us this is an O/O that typically plans to be out on those 4-5 day runs.
