  Well, I got the box open! Been a busy couple of days and looks like from the others i'm already a month behind, LOL   Not sure yet what it will be, i'll get the basics done first. No dump box for sure.

Don't feel too far behind, I'm waiting until I get a few things in the mail this coming week before I even decide what I'll be building ?‍♂️? Looking forward to watching, one of these is one of the things I'm waiting for on shipping :D

Well, here's where mine is at for now. I'll get the truck done first, then decide which way to go. And no, it won't be this shiney. I haven't built one of these in what seems like 40 yrs.

Nice build right there !!!  These trucks are so nice to look at 

One thing I've done before that helps the look , take a thin strip of plastic and attach  it under the cab door like a filler panel.  It hides the see through effect .

Jeff, im not so sure u will say that when (or if) it gets completed, lol! And yes, i've got those filler panels out of an old road boss kit somewhere. I finished up a reo today, it may have em in the box,.

Lol these older trucks just look awesome to me , probably why I prefer to build the older steel working trucks !  Eventually I'll drop an autocar cab on a scratchbuilt refuse truck ive wanted to build

Did a little bit more to it, it's in a "don't shake the table mode!" Got to do a little more work on the grille insert with the bars.  And with so many cool trucks going together its hard to find words to respond to all of em, but i'm watching every one!

Small update, just can't seem to get motivated again. Just an old 70's homemade tow truck, boom mounted so it can be removed to pull a trailer. Still work to do on the bed, paint and weathering.
