Hello fellow LJ’s. Recently finished this cab over truck. I used both the Toys and Joys plan and the Gatto plan with my spin. Truck came out better than I anticipated. I used Ash, Walnut and Purple Heart. I used plexi-glass for the windows as all the wiring runs through the cab and i want to hide that. I believe I will try to make a grain trailer for the truck. As always all comments are welcome. Thank you.

If your in the St. Louis area I would recommend running to St. Charles and checking out U-Pick hardwoods. I took my family to Six Flags and we swung by there to ‘look’. Ended up picking up the Purple Heart from there. Service and pricing were great.

Another nice one. I like the lights and sometimes I consider to make myself a model with it, but till now I didn’t. I also like a model completely made out of wood. Nice wheels, nice colors, briefly; “Well done”
