Marty, I fully expect this project to be just as spectacular as your Aussie road train. I will be watching as you progress. Good luck, Mike

Cheers Mike .
Getting a little bit of progress happening . Bonnet had to get 8mm longer and 4mm wider at the grille end , Cab needed the hole where the sleeper was filled in and a new rear window and the exhaust stack lugs filled in , Doors needed the windows reshaped and the bottom window on the lh door filled in .

Marty K, the cab and hood look fantastic so far, great work. This looks like a great post to follow just like your last incredible customization.

modelmaniac : 19ltr Cummin's in the real thing , I believe the bonnet was 'stretched' on these to get a cooling system in there to handle 50+ degree outside temps .
Exkvate3140 : Cheers mate , theres a long list of stuff to do with this one so it wont be a quick project...

It looks like this is going to be a beast of a project, I can’t wait to see more!
