Inspired by the famous 1939 Plymouth Air Radial Truck, I decided to build my own version of an air radial-engine truck.

For my model, I opted for the 1948 Ford F-1. So it's not a 1 to 1 replica. 
The original vehicle, I think the interior too cheesy. That's why I've made it a little cleaner and more decent.

All modifications (complete engine, complete interior etc.) are built from scratch.

This looks amazing. Is it based on a Die Cast or Plastic ? The Interior and the Engine are exceptional looking.

That is one outstandingly smooth silver paint job.  The whole build is over the top, excellent work.
