When i first saw this thread, I thought it was a typo and should have read 4.5 years; but you really mean 45 years! They look pretty good, and I hope to see more.

Yes I do Tim, but I was painting the cab to box art and the red bled so I put it in the purple tank. Been busy posting pictures all summer long on my Fotki site and will return to the models soon.

I went back and looked and I have been on your site many times and know the history but how could you tell that the model behind the 359 was a 352?

The short wheelbase and the lack of a cab crossmember told me "COE."

Dan! You're everywhere. Back to work on that truck crane.

I might add that I met Dan at a model club meeting in Bend, Oregon a few years ago and he is one of people that got me re-interested in models. It just took me a while to get started again.

It's great you've returned to building. It's a great hobby and you'll continue to get a lot out of it. This is a nice way to grow a collection of trucks. Congrats.
