WOW! ROO! This is one of the best model I ever seen. The whole thing is perfect, I cannot think of anything to criticize, not a single thing.

Awesome work, my brother, very very proud of you!

Great job,Cliff.
Now I got an idea how it all looks together.Is there an aftermarket CB radio antenna available? Or is hat for a post war version?

That looks just awesome Cliff
I see you decided to go without the girly mud flaps, or the "Report my driving 800-F***Y**" bumper sticker which is very popular on many trucks in this aera #:-) Which I had recomended. I guess that was a wise decision.

The tarp and wood of the trailer look very realistic, in fact look dead on.
This one's a keeper. Supper work Mate

Hi Folks. One or two people asked if I could photograph the Federal and trailer togeather so here is some pics. The front support wheels of the trailer look funny as they are in the down position and the fifth wheel is sitting at an angle as the models were made to be individual items.

Any comments welcome.
