This is absolutely amazing work. 

Thanks Sam

I really appreciate everyone’s comments. I now have the stripes on and just need to paint the blue plus make the AAR letters on the back doors.

Thanks JT. 
 I’ve got the trailer together now just need to finish the ramps on the inside and glue the top on. Then start on the Cuda’s.

Excellent work on the inner working of the ramp and such... It looks quite realistic... Great job, Man... 🙂Trying to figure this stuff can really give you a headache... IQ test every time, for me....🤔

Final pictures of the interior before closing it up with the top. Test fitting with my Challengers to confirm the Cuda’s will fit. 
I appreciate everyone’s comments on my build.

Thanks Brian 

I’ve been able to glue the top on now. Waiting now for my Plymouth letters to be made then I can finish it up. In the mean time I’m going to be starting on the Cuda’s.

Thanks JT, I may have to make this into a diorama. 
Still waiting on my Plymouth letters my friend that’s going to make them came down with shingles so I’m going to start working on the Cuda’s.

Truck looks great.  I built a competition 'Cuda not long ago using the new tool 1/25 scale Revell kit.  Look forward to your 'Cuda builds.

Thanks JC do you have your competition Cuda posted I would like to see it. I’m trying to figure out all the roll bars they used. I’ve been able too make the front spoiler and brake air ducts. Been digging in my car parts boxes to find some parts. I’m going to be changing out the six pack carbs for a single 4 barrel. Here’s what the spoiler looks like so far.

Dan, the roll cage AAR used is one of the most complex I have built.  Here is my build thread.  I gathered a fair amount of reference on the cars so if I can be of help just ask.
