Both trucks look GREAT !
Your attention to detail with both trucks, painting of the engines and drivers, has me thinking that you have some model building in your background.

Built a few as a kid but nothing major. I think it is my vehicle restoration hobby that helped me get more focused on detail oriented work.

Pretty cool how you have the driver's arm hanging out the window. I don't think I've seen that done before. :thumbsup:

Awesome work on both trucks, they look fantastic. Two of the best retro trucks I've ever seen.
