    JT, Very cool idea. I can see this being fun and interesting to build. With your skills, pretty slick when done.

    It will be cool either way, Travis. Both the best and worst part of any contest build, is pushing yourself to get to that contest level in your mind's standards.
     Win or lose, doing something you have never done before is a victory in itself.
    JT, what makes that funny, is you make that really work, each and every time.

    Great choice, Mike. I almost chose 1 of my Bill Drennen W900Ls for this build. Can't wait to see where you take one of my favorite trucks.

    Here are a couple of pictures of what I have managed to bet done so far. I got a bunch of Freightliner resin parts off of ebay a few years ago. They were pretty rough, and I never intended to use them. Along comes the B.R.B.O, and I finally have a use for some of them. In the side by side pic, you can see the before and after, so to speak. Just about everything was wrong, the grille height, the taper of the hood, the fenders, the blister on the top, and headlights. I also found out, that used fabric softener dryer sheets make great matting to reinforce super glue just like the matting used for fiberglass. Makes it very strong. With lots of sheet styrene, super glue and mat, and sand paper galore, these are the changes so far.
    Thanks for taking the time to check out my pics, and thanks to Clayton for getting this going, it has been a lot of fun already.

    Clayton is exactly right.

    JT's words work perfectly.

    All that is missing is the 'Tractor of the Month' title to go with pictures. Just a beautiful job, all around.

    Tony, you hit the nail on the head! Over 40 years ago, folding card table in my parents living room, faceted Pactra enamel bottles Testors black bristled brushes and black plastic handled knives all around, ripping the cellophane of a White Freightliner Dual drive. Kmart got my three bucks and tax, and I got a model truck jones that has never abated. The wheels and exhaust were over-chromed and wrinkly on one side and almost white on the other, ruined half a dozen of my mothers clothes pins on the *)%@ split cab, but loved every minute of it. Still do!

    I am liking this, good choice. I have a couple of the D.R. kits...maybe when I recover from this build...Going to be very cool.

    Excellent build. What a faithful reproduction.
    Gotta love Cabovers, old school, new school, no school, even reform school. Crazy about Cabovers. What was it I read in another post, "if it has a hood, it is no good".

    A definite improvement in appearance, in any scale. Nice work.

    Really liking the originality of thought here, Gator. Pretty slick combination.
