    The white is Model Master Lacquer Classic White. These pictures were taken indoors inside a photo booth with overhead lighting, so that might be the reason they look like an off white.

    No trailer, I just don't have the shelf space

    The tub comes molded in blue and silver, everything that is white in color is Evergreen strip.

    Thanks to all for the compliments.

    I've never really looked at it as trying to inspire, I'd rather think of it as promoting truck building. The "big rig" segment of the automotive modeling hobby tends to be overlooked and under appreciated. However, it is my only modeling interest. I do look at other subjects such as racing cars but I don't build any. The only thing I do build is rigs, with an emphasis on daycab tractors and vocational trucks. It has recently been suggested to me, via PM, that I need to "tone things down" and "stop being a show off". Apparently my contributions to this forum are not appreciated by all. That doesn't really surprise me, and I'm not losing any sleep over it. Hopefully those that do appreciate my work will continue to do so.
    OK, rant over. Getting off the soap box now ....

    The AMT re-issue from a few years back... The chassis and engine are from an original 4270 junker, (903 Cummins, air ride suspension), aftermarket decals by Brad Johnson (original owner/founder Modeltruckin.com), slight weathering under hood and on engine




    Shots of the "inspiration" ....
