This is a beautiful design from the drawing on the table. Are you a designer or engineer in your profession?

The drawings came from carblueprints website, all i did was upscale to 2-1/4" wheels and the rest just trial and error. The low cab roof has a rat rod look which got my attention.

This custom Peterbilt wood toy truck is one of the coolest I have seen on the internet!

What a beauty of a custom Peterbilt. The chopped top and lowered chassis is superb. I saw a custom Kenworth where the toymaker used automobile 1/4" stripe tape that has permanent adhesive. He ran a white strip along where his two colors bumped together. He then sprayed the whole truck with a spray can polyurethane clear for durability. I am going to try it sometime in the future.

Nice color choice and a superb design.
