Why does it slope down in the front? Your coffee would spill. Rookie rods on a dump truck, nah. It look sissy, like a Rhode Island truck. No tarp. Cheater boards should look like wood. Not bad for your first custom though. Akwarmdeere

modelmaniac, thanks first time I have ever changed out stacks on any of my models, another idea I got from Claus.
Thanks
Steve

Q (OMFNC), it is called aerodynamics, and it is the reason there is no tarp because when I overload it and material is 3’ above the waterline (look that up in one of your dump truck books because it has nothing to do with how you get potable water to your townhouse) it diverts the wind above the load, and when I get pulled over it really won’t matter if the load is covered or not because they will be more concerned with the overweight fine than the fine for the load not being covered. The reason the side boards are metal is because there are so many operators out there like you, they would be smashed off after the first bucket. The reason for the rods is that someday I may send this to you (along with a box of gerbils) and you will definitely need them in and around the townhouse. Also open the box with the model first because if you open the gerbil box first it will be days before you even get to model. Also i really appreciate all of your very positive comments, you are a true really really OLD friend.
Thanks

Claus that’s The Q’s Dog Pissa, I believe he was out looking for Craig’s gerbils that got frightened when they saw that he had that gleam in his eyes, and while on their trail he had to go.
