David,

Very nice clean build. Lots of detail to it. Everytime I look at it I notice something else you did.Very nice work.

The glad hands look like the trailer side is attached?

Ken.

HI David, first of all I love your builds, i like a lot of the same subject matter, but anyways, I'm thinkin of building a t800 and I was curious as to how well the cab is cast, as well as the fit of the cab, thanks in advance!
