Here we go....I finally got it finished, enough, to post it under glass....I'm kinda proud of this one, as I tried something to reinforce the chassis so that it wouldn't sag and it seems to have worked....No discernable sag....I'm happy, happy, happy....Here's a shot of the finished product, first, and then some of the progression...

Finally got this one almost all done...The only thing I have to do is connect the turbo to the air cleaners....

 

It's been raining, but tomorrow is supposed to be pretty nice....Hopefully I'll get some outside shots of it....Hope Y'all enjoy it....

 

Now it's on to the trailer....

Here's what I got on the trailer, right now...Completely scratchbuilt, with the exception of the wheels and tires....They're from the 1/20 scale Lindberg edition Pete.....About to start on the interior....I haven't figured out, exactly, what it's gonna look like, but I have a pretty good idea...

 

Oh, yeah....This thing is just shy of 5' long....59 1/4", to be exact....And 10" tall...

Good looking rig, JT. The trailer just compliments the truck. Are you building a seperate room to keep it in?!!!
