    International 5300

    That's gonna be nice. The painted tanks will definitely be an upgrade. Engine and trans look great. But what kind of engine is that? Looks like it has a turbo propelled by both banks of cylinders -- is it like an 8V-92 or something? (Duh --not the world's biggest Detroit expert) Johnny

    T800 Kenworth Logging truck

    I've always liked the T800 -- a great truck that has stood the test of time for decades now. Did not know that about the windshields. Thanks for the info. Johnny

    Alaskan Hauler(ish)

    Score! --- Nice kit, also excellent door signs! I remember Hill&Hill from back in the day. They had two terminals: Houston, Texas and Casper, Wyoming. They ran pipe and stem and drilling machinery from the Port of Houston to all points in the northern US, Canada, and Alaska. They had a whole fleet of those company trucks painted that particular shade of green. I never drove for them, but they had the rep of being a good outfit to work for, with super good equipment -- as long as you didn't need to be home every weekend 😎 Johnny

    Ryder Ford H Model

    That looks great -- love the fuel decals and swinging license plates! Q: Did Ford have to lean the engines over to get them to fit in there? Whassup with that? That's an interesting detail for sure. Johnny

    1926 Mack AC Stake Truck

    Totally! That looks great. This is fun -- I never understood how those radiator setups worked before -- it's like two separate radiators, one on each side, with a common expansion chamber and filler across the top. They look good and keep the chill off the driver on those frosty July afternoons. Johnny

    JB Weld makes good stuff! It's a really successful company making da best adhesive products that was started by an ol' boy in a shed on his farm outside of Sulphur Springs , Texas. The farm's still there (now with improved farmhouse), right next to the main plant, and it still has one of the original JB Weld trailers parked out by the fence next to the highway. Gotta love it!

    Brian, I like how you refer to dirt as "earth tones" -- good one! Johnny
