Nice! It needs to be weathered a bit and taken outside and photographed in a realistic setting.

Tom, thats an easy one! The exhaust manifold are painted with a two part system called sophisticated finishes antiquing solutions. Its available at Michaels cradft stores. The first part is a iron colored paint that has real iron dust in it. The second part is a chemical solution you brush on in multiple coats that rusts the paint. I follow that with a black wash and a silver drybrush to hit the highlights.
Wow! I was just about to ask this question because I got so excited when I saw the turbo and exhaust parts! Good thing I took a deep breath and read through first! I am building a 4300 as we speak as my first build and this is serving as basically a walk through! Looks great man!

It looks fantastic!
If it was mine, though, I'd add some sort of company name and graphics (logo, phone #, etc.) on the doors.

On a scale note, I mix 1/24 and 1/25 parts all the time with no issues. The Italeri floats look fine to me, as well. Tires come in all sizes... sometimes you just have to go big. ;^)

Just need a puddle of oil and hydraulic fluid underneath and a bag of potato chips on the cab floor. Incredible job!
You guys blow me away on interiors.....and just when I thought I was getting decent...you raise the bar again!
Keep it up!
