Thats gonna be a monster! 

Love the plan drawing , I was helped by Gary Wallace years ago w a scaled down drawing of the fdm mixer I was building . Sure made it easier making parts fit and  look right 

Ps..the phrase was also coined by Walt Disney when designing Walt Disney world bit of useless history

Yes sir, plans sure do help, especially with things like this, especially when they can be directly measured from for the parts. I have heard another phrase used for building stuff that looks real, kind of like imagineering................gizmology. Works for me!

Yup, the original has an 8v71 NA in the carrier and a 6/71 in the upper.  Just got the cab and front fenders and bumper all made and attached.  Lots of finish work to do but hours and hours of fab work yet.

That looks awesome sitting on its wheels ! Certainly shows off the shear size of the truck now 

Keep up the stellar build

Looking more like a truck all the time.  Noticed your use of plastic angle stock for the base of the cab sides, etc.  I found that to work well also.  Light duty but adds some stiffness and strength.  And there will be so much detail to really show off when this is done.  Great project!
