Thanks Carl. That's my little pride and joy. I know it has flaws, but I'm really happy with it. Maybe because it's the first truck I had built in 10 years.

Hey Clayton, your 359 is very sharp. The W900, chrome tanker combo is eye candy.

This is the only 'snapper' I have ever done.100_0967_zpspsems4mf.jpg100_0960_zpsrjiwd8f4.jpg100_0959_zpsacqfl5py.jpg

Now Who said that those snap kits are just for kids???? You guys all did a real fine job on those models!! A little imagination and work and those snappers can look really good.

Be Well

Man Dennis. You take the whole thing to another level. Amazing mods on all of these. Great job.

Thanks Clayton. These kits are very versatile with endless possibilities! Even the parts they have can easily be used on other builds.

I always enjoy looking at your snap builds :D

This is the only one I've ever built, and still never finished. Rear suspension and axles replaced with a Hendrickson and axles from an Astro kit, wheels from an Autocar kit, rear fenders are modified mixer kit.

Clayton, thank you very much.

Dennis, I could very well say the same for yours. They have 'Heavy Duty' written allover them. Well Done.

Terry, Anthony is quite correct, that trailer is way to cool not to be completed. The Pete makes for a very cool combo.

Thanks man. I originally built it without modifying the width of the chassis.It was way too wide. I have recently cut it apart and narrowed it, and made it a tandem. It may be done soon. I have made some progress on the truck as well.

The chassis width was the primary reason why I used the Fruehauf Flat Bed chassis as a donor on both of mine. I plan on building another one eventually using the same ideas.

Gotta say, that Pete you're working on, Terry is pretty awesome looking....Those Italeri dumpers have some great potential.....If they weren't so proud of them, I'd have a few more....I only have one, but I just may have to break down and get another.....

And, Dennis, I can't get over how much talent you have......From your first build, I've watched you turn out awesome model after awesome model....Amazing, Dude.....

And, what a model, Mark.....Just an amazing piece of work....

And don't even let me get started, Clayton.....It's amazing how similar our building styles are.....Big fan of your work, Man.....Big fan....

I've built a few, myself....

Thanks man. I like to keep about 40 or 50 ongoing builds. It keeps my time divided so I never really get anything done.
