Hi I'm Blue Devil I drove trucks for 19 years and i met and married my wife and she didn't like trucking so i got out of it and went back to working  on them. Been doing that now for 10 years. And I decided one day to try and put a model truck together.  And it came out ok it dont look as good as the ones I see on here.. I'm starting a 2nd one and ita a cabover freightliner.  I wish I could find a Freightliner classic xl condo.like I drove . But have been able to.. but any way is some pictures of the 1st truck I done..

Welcome to the forum. Sounds like you bring a lot of experience here when it comes to real trucks. That kind of knowledge can be really helpful to the modeling community. 

For the Classic XL, I wish it was easier to find in 1/24 or 1/25 scale. There’s been a very limited number of resin conversion kits made over the years. There’s also been a few guys to make them using parts (and ingenuity) from both Italeri’s FLC and FLD kits. Either way, not easy, unfortunately. Though, I’ve seen them in 1/32 scale here and there, but that doesn’t help much when you’re into 1/24 and 1/25.
