    I am with nova-ss on this one as a truck mechanic I know that a owner operators truck may be
    clean and shiny on top,but they are all dirty underneath.

    The more you build the better you get. I love to research my build, getting as much info and pictures as I can.
    Part of building trucks is learning about them.
    Keep building and have fun.

    Nice collection of old built kits. I enjoy collecting old built trucks almost as much as building them.
    Next time my wife says I have to many I will show her your pictures.
    no matter what keep them they are history markers of our hobby

    If you are using testors enamel make sure it is stirred real good.

    I cut a piece of plastic tree into a tee shape so the small end
    will fit in the bottle and stir until all paint is the same thickness
