Hi guys, this is my annual build, an Italeri FLD120 with a Moebius 53 foot Great Dane roll up door dry van. I have seen these D&R rigs go up and down the highways since I was a kid. In the early 90's I was struck by the styling of the FLD as being a breakthrough at the time, being very good looking for a fleet truck. So, since I'm familiar with the Day & Ross "Ship The Big Orange" paint scheme and still liking the FLD so much, I decided to make one of my own! So here is the breakdown, I started with the Italeri kit that has the silver truck box art with the cab side exhausts. The truck is box stock except for shortened rear hubs, "baby moon" button hub covers, Michelin drive tires from SIA A&N and a replaced the roof air deflector with a unit from a Revell of G Pete 359. Air brake hoses are on the truck and trailer too. The Moebius smoothside is also almost bone stock, except for the scratch built wheel hubs and KFS 1/24 scale wheels and Italeri tires to match. All wheels roll on the rig, that's just something I have to keep. No I don't play with them, it's just that I need to keep the "functionality" on all my builds. The decals are from Jerry at Modeltruckin'. I still have to go through some last details like the connecting hoses and wires to get the whole package finished though. Here are the pictures...
