Man, I wish I could build a paint booth that big... That's awesome, and this truck and trailer combo is going to ROCK!!!! This is the truck that started it all, for me.... My first Italeri model... I was so impressed with how well it built up, I was forever hooked... Also, I paired it up with the Italeri 48' refer trailer, and it looked good in front of that... This new 53'er will, no doubt, look seriously awesome... Great choice... Wish I'da thought of it...😁

This will be another show stopper !!!

Thanks guys . The upper hood stripe is an odd duck, nothing about it fits properly,  not sure what I’m going to do with it, not sure if I should leave it or try to do something different with it......., time will tell I suppose. Over the weekend I got the engine plopped in, and a bit of the cab interior done.

I think this is why I'm interested in this one. Haven't seen it done before!

 

I have made one in 2008. You can see it here

Tom, I wouldn't use those engine shilds. They are hidding the engine after all. And be careful with joyning chassis and cab. In my case front wheels didn't match with wheel wels. I was have to move front axle.

Ok, the stripe job went off the rails, so we changed gears and it’ll be a fleet rig, but a nice one. The trailer will naturally have matching decals.
