    Hi guys, Ive decided to start a new thread to post all the Trucks and Trailers I built and put together.

    Ive been building my new layout as many of you have seen from my shelf layout thread, but on the down time when things are drying on the layout, i work on the trucks and trailers that i have that are still in there original packaging. I have TONS of these just laying around on the work bench, boxes and boxes of trailers that need to be build, trucks that need to be assembled and detailed, and a heck of a lot of painting and decaling that needs to be done. Instead of crowding my shelf layout thread, i figured i would start a new thread.

    I also have an interesting idea for this thread, for all the road names and freight companies, i will start a new post in this thread. When i built and detail another truck for a company that has already been posted, ill simply go back and edit that post and post a new reply at the end of the thread saying which posts have been updated in the thread.... This way all the freight companies will be together

    Hey Josh....
    That is an impressive array of trucks you got there!:thumb:

    I was admiring the subtle and realistic weathering that you have given them and thinking back to when you first started to weather. I remember a certain person felt that everybody was being too "nice" to you and that you wouldn't get better without a proper critique. Well, I also remember saying that you already knew what to do, you just needed practice and encouragement. Josh, you have shown that our faith was well placed!
    I don't know of anyone that has improved more than you in so short a time. Your modeling and weathering keep getting better and more realistic with every new project. It really is awesome to see!:thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb:
    That USF trailer is stupendous!!!!

    Just slow down a little and let the rest of us catch up!:winker:
