Yes! This is a refreshing change! Very nice! They're still model trucks, so it doesn't really matter what you build them out of. Good work! Your wife did put a nice touch to this one. What surprises me most is that details are still pretty close to scale even in the (Peterbilt's) engine compartment, ok, some details are slightly off, limited by brick size, but overall your trucks look really good and having played with Lego myself as a kid like tons others here, I have to say you have done impressive work.

I see you got a mind like mine. When I was in Kosovo we bought out all the Legos at a German post Xchange store. I need to get more Bricks. I kustom ordered a set of 750 bricks with various parts and pieces for rigs off Lego.com. Looks good.
