    This is the progress I've made so far.. There are certain items that have givin me some troubles. The chrome finish looked nice on the "trees" but after installation and some weathering I've noticed it has worn through in two spots :/ The alignment of the hood has been tough too(I accidentally broke a support)! Anyways still a bunch more to do..

    Nascar Transporter
    Has anyone built a modern Nascar transporter? As I was working the last few days, driving up and down the Florida Turnpike between West Palm Beach to Miami to Key West I got to see some amazing looking rigs transporting the race cars for the Homestead Nascar event this weekend. The most impressive trailers were pulled by some "nasty" Lonestars. If any of ya fellas have built a replica I'd like to see it!! If the graphics are available in scale one of these beauties might have to be on my build list!

    Thanks for the tip! I'll get some outdoor pictures when it's all finished.. I have quite a bit more to go(finish assembly, decals, weathering to include dirt and rust).

    Just some progress..originally I was thinking a two tone red with gunmetal but now I'm leaning towards all gun metal?

    I'm also working on real fabric for the interior.. Floor at least maybe door panels too.

    My first truck build "BST" Peterbilt 359

    These are a few pictures of my progress so far.. I'm doing my own version of the RoG Bill Signs Trucking Peterbilt 359. I am going for the used/worn in look when finished. The colors will be Tamiya gun metal fenders, roof and frame with the rest of the cab being Tamiya Italian red. Sorry for the picture quality as I'm a rookie photographer and model builder! All comments welcome

    KW T800 wide hood
    Good evening all.. I'm not sure if this topic has been discussed, but has anyone built a Kenworth T800 with the wide hood/large cooling system option? Is there a resin conversion kit out there for this specific truck? I would really enjoy seeing some pictures if anyone has built this "beast"! Thanks in advance..

    Wow it's been about 15yrs since I've seen that first style Holden trailer.. I spent six years pulling that around with MK48 power unit. I think it was called the M870A2? I just thought some "magic elfs" made it, I didn't realize it was a commercially made unit available to civilians!
