I like this one. The simplicity of it, the scale, the colors, and when it's put together, it looks very realistic. Good job on this one. Thanks for the picture of the parts before assembly.

Thank you Flame painter I have admired your work and intend to try some flame painting in the near future. This was a very simple pattern but not the quality of John's patterns.

I love the style of the truck.
I watch the American show Monster Jam on telly here in NZ and have been contemplating building one.
you have given me the inspiration.  I particularly like the way you have done the mounts for the axels.

You are way ahead of us Andy, things are slowly getting better here. I spent some time in Christ Church about fifty years ago and I have fond memories of NZ.

you would not know Christchurch now, the city has been devastated by two major earth quakes and is in the very long process of rebuilding.  my wife's family all live down there, her brothers home was completely rebuilt

I have seen pictures of the damage and I feel very bad for the people of Christchurch, they treated us very well when I was there and I still hear from then on occasion.

Andy I see you retired from the NZ Army, I too have retired from the US army some time ago as I believe we are the same age (73).
