    So I'm slowly working on this truck for Dale and the port of Catoosa.

    Thought of going wrecker with it but going just s slightly different approach that I think dale will like

    Dug into my parts bin and found a better battery box on driver's side for it and also will be getting a different fuel tank mounted under the passenger door will be several changes for this truck

    Before it gets to Dale so enjoy as it progresses

    I was just gonna make a post similar to this. They don't have to be hand made right? For some reason, and I only have a few, I like the 18 wheeler type vehicles, and the trailers. I bought mine years ago, but want to get more eventually. I also have some Atlas TTX things that carry the trailers I bought years ago, if I can find them. Actually the red cabs went with the trailers hauling wood, bought them as a set. I know they are cheap, but I just like cabs and trailers, for some reason.

    Your work is amazing. You 3D print all the stuff, or buy kits? Or all of the above? Great work, btw, did I hijack your thread? If I did is there a general "Show Us your Vehicles" thread.
