Absolutely Awesome, love the detail and lights.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

I like the pictures of the trucks you built. I also like the pictures of the real trucks with the lights on. Wait a minute, HOLY CRAP!! There’s lights on the trucks you built!! I’ve seen a lot of wood trucks, but never any with lights on them. Awesome job!
