Most of it is the orignal block. At least the cab that is.The trailer is popeler. It took about two months to make and had very little problems. Every thing sort of fell into place.I gues if you transformed and played with the toy as much as I have as a kid I coud have made it blind folded.

Oh Man I don’t know if I should even show my son this. The shreaks of excitement and daily begging me to build one for him just might be too much for me. ;) We took top in his Den & 2nd in the pack last year with the “Flying Wedge” design. I think this year we are going to go for a more creative design. Definitely going to use yours for inspiration.

Amazing car! Look forward to seeing more from you.
