Here's another build for you. This time it's an Italeri 378. This one has some meanig to it though. My dad is a veteran truck driver of almost 35 years now. He's only had three brand new trucks in that whole time. His 2000 379 is number three. Right after he got it I spied the kit at the LHS. At the time, I didn't know the differences, so about all thats the same compared to his truck is the paintjob and rear fenders. The fenders and square horns are from the Revell Pete wrecker. Anyway, here's my version (yes, I know the pass. turn signal is missing, and it annoys me to no end).

I painted the engine to disguise it as a Caterpillar.
