Every time I look at this post I get the image of Dr. Frankenstein creating his monster.  This is definitely going to be an amazing finished build.  Just checking out that "load" I sure wouldn't want to meet this one coming down a twisty mountain road.  Keep at it.

Getting warm up here now.. Humid today at work.. Well one of!! I work at John Deere as my primary job running a steel punch press. Part time I work at my buddy's shop working on trucks and getting into driving them. He does a lot of flat bed work and hauls precast for buildings and parking structures.. Not quite as heavy as the model I'm building but pretty close!!! 150 foot concrete beams that are 6 feet wide and 6 feet tall. Forget what they weigh out at...

Glad to hear you're building!!! Can't wait to see your builds again my friend!!!!

That's pretty wild.  I thought for a while that the steer car was going to be a big time dragster!

In physics.......it really kinda is.

Looks great in yellow!

Thanks Brian! I’m Thinking it’ll look good behind the KW if I paint it blue, or any rig I put it behind for that matter. I’m thinking the lead rig will look close to my friends W9. Although his doesn’t have a tag axle...

Of course you realize this will require a custom built box to transport the finished model to and from model shows.

May require a moving van too!!!!!!  LOL
