AITM and Illini Replicas both have some Diamond T cabs available. I am actually mastering a few Diamond T's that Im going to cast in the next few months. A 901/910 has a very similar style to that Federal.

Frontier Resin Designs. You can find them on ebay. They make a bunch of obscure older trucks. Ancient GMC's studebakers, dodge big horns, mercury's etc. Ive bought a few of their cabs including the daycab version of this Federal.

It looks like your off and running. So, did you use the Krupp titan kit, or is this the Chevy titan?
