Well, Boys, I finally got this one done.....This was really a fun one for me....Every once in a while, you build a model that really solidifies why you're in the hobby in the first place....This one was it for me....I really like the way it turned out, and I hope you guys do, too....

With this one, I stretched the frame, added new fuel tanks, new step boxes, a big Texas bumper with rookie poles, and tool boxes, and some chicken lights....The trailer was completely scratch built, with the exception of the wheels and tires....Those are AMT..I made LED tail lights for it, too....The cars are from AMT, Revell or Monogram and were built years ago....Except for the Challenger....I just built that one a few months ago.....This is the final product....Well, 95% of it, at least....Still need conspicuity markings and electrical and air lines, of course....

Wow JT - That is just amazing from the front bumper to the taillights.

Rookie poles ? - I always used those to bust the chains and cables across roads on job sites ;)
