Sorry Bruce. I usually import plans into SketchUp to help in understanding the process and assist with the build. Unfortunately that is one set of plans I haven’t purchased yet.

One reason I scratch build now is that most plans, whether Gatto or T&J need adjustments and field alterations. You DON’T have to match them exactly to get good results. That said if your building it for someone that wants just that truck. Step back and go for it. Doug

Dutchy made one for his dump truck if I remember right but it was a T&Y plan.

Hope this helps.
