I like the way you built your truck. It looks great, and with the right background it would look like the real full sized truck.

There's a gravel pit not far from me and when some light snow settles on the piles of sand and light vegetation, I'd like to take a couple of my car models and place them up there for photos.

That's fantastic! I appreciate the truth in your work. Good for you in recognizing the beauty in these machines, even when they have become yard art. You have really captured that with your model.

Congratulations Chrissy! As far as the parts being warped, you will find the same thing wrong with the full size pieces most of the time!
