WOW, What a chore….but it was fun. I decided to paint it because it just looks so realistic.

Just returned from a mine project you project is very representative of the real McCoy, and something to keep well clear of !!

Nice work, I can relate to the work reference you made, the detail is very well done.

I retired after many hours in the California Rock and Sand industry.
Rock trucks like this are used on Catalina Island in the Connolly Rock quarry.
You did a very nice job. Caterpillar would be proud.
