Beautiful replica & tribute! Too many details to take in at once, l will have to read the workbench thread to soak it all in. Very impressive! Bart.

John I have seen a lot of truck models in my day and this is hands down the best I have ever seen.I had a hard time telling were the pictures of the real truck ended and the model began,your work on this thing is amazing as usual.Im still drooling over this one man.

Unfreaking believable ! That truck is just plain beautiful. As someone else said, it is hard if even possible to tell the real truck from your replica. You are a true artist to be sure. Looking forward to your next project.

I was thinking the same thing - where are the model pictures? Then I realized that those were the model pics! Incredible work, John. Just about perfect detail. Amazing work!

I've been following along too and am still totally AMAZED at your fantastic skills, John. Unreal build.

How do you get so many pics in 1 post? I thought we're limited to just 5?

Absolutely stellar job John. Any time you can create a model that can be confused for the real thing you have accomplished a great feat. And not only the level of the build but what it represents makes this your best accomplishment to date, IMHO.
