Seems everyone liked your truck before, but it looks like you are making it even better. Great amount of work done so far and it looks really well. Will be going back to the same color scheme or something new?

yea i think it was popular as it was ...just me wanted to change it as i dont like regular i like to be different and now iv'e got a little more experience thought i'd try and make it alot better thn before and more like a kenworth the colours will be the same but a different look and alot more detail with flip bonnet and engine bay done ive also moved the front axle forwards for a better look ........won't have any updates till mid June as i'm off to Canada and USA eastern seaboard for 3 weeks.......mainly trucking over there with my brother
