I'm not a massive truck builder as they take up time and space and cost quite a bit here in the UK, so I'm not great at building them, but I love 70's trucks especially so couldn't resist this one.

It's a very detailed kit, and quite weighty. The only draw back which is age related rather than the build quality is the chrome surface is a bit fragile, the inner cab base was a little warped making hard to install the cab, and the decals quite thick but not very adhesive making contours a head ache.
But anyway, it's a handsome truck.

superb, looks very good. I like how it has been photographed outside but not in bright sunshine. Makes it look more realistic.

Very nice work on this truck build. Looks like it is ready for the road.

Very good looking Inter there, arcturus, the paint scheme is totally realistic. is it 1/24 scale?  Man, it must be HUGE.  Cheers
