I was asked by a coworker to build a fuel truck shadow box for his retirement. I based this off the previous trucks that I have built. It was definitely a skill building project but I am pretty pleased with how it came out.

Now that is hitting the road the right way …... being retired Air Force that is the best. The lights are also a nice touch I’m sure it was a hit. Well done

Thank you to everyone for the kind words! I really enjoy getting as many details as possible into my projects. Most of the minor details are probably not noticed by many but it is still a fun challenge to see what kind of details I can incorporate.
