I finally got something to post.....It's been pretty hot in the garage, lately, but I managed to get one done during a string of overcast days we recently had.....Nothing special....Pretty much out of the box with a deck added.....I've got a trailer going as we speak.....This one is going to be added to my fleet as soon as I get it done.....

Well, I got the trailer done, today....I need to add some sort of logo to it.....Haven't decided what, just yet....I have a few ideas going, but it will take some more thinking, before I commit to one....Hope you guys like it....I like these Euro rigs....They do such a nice job of stuffing so much in such a limited amount of space.....

Very nice to see a German truck here. As a German I can say that your clean build is totally convincing.

Thanks, Guys.....I got the MB from an old Ducati race team kit, and I want to say that it is a '00 or maybe an '01....Not sure what the exact year it really is, but I'm sure it's from that era.....The trailer is the Revell/Germany refer kit.....The decal came from a Man truck/trailer kit.....The yellow one...I don't know what exact kit, but I just never used them....Hope this helps....

Nice work on the Actros and trailer, JT, I built one of these a few years ago and I have noticed that you have a gap between the cab door and the front bumper as well as me. Apart from that, a beautiful job!!

Thanks, Man.....I wasn't sure, either, but I think this is correct....I have a pic, but the part that makes the gap look so prominent is painted the same color as the truck....Something I probably should have researched in the first place, but, you know how it is..I see some other stuff that I missed, too.....Here's a pic of one of the era's MB's, but it's not the exact same truck, so....I really don't know....
