I was searching for an adjective when I saw one truck but when I saw all of them I was dumfounded. That stuff is crazy good.

Thanks guys for your comments, it is very important to have patience in this work. The amount of truck I built is for a company that has branches in different states. They are sold

My goodness me “doriel”,
You spent something like 12 hours a day for 31 days making that fleet of 12 trucks and the detail is superb plus moving parts, magnificent.
One master craftsmen indeed.

Have you tried star wars spaceships? X-wing fighter? TIE Fighter? Millenium falcon? With your level of attention to detail, you could really bring those legendary starcrafts to life :)
