I built the snow plow version, but it's always fun to see how many different permutations that old AMT gem can be found in.

Yours looks impeccable! Very nice work indeed.

Another beauty.  Great pics as well.  Looks like you live in a Forrest.  
Your trucks are making me want to try one. 

Thanks,

John

Excellent build!  Love the clean lines and the load in the back is perfect for this short hauler.  Who makes the pallet mover?  Regarding the orginal donor kit, how is the C-series cab over to build?  I've been thinking of getting it to build the truck that Clint Eastwood was driving at the beginning of "Every Which but Loose".  One other question, could you take the Ford Louisville Short Hauler kit, omit the box body, and mount the fuel truck tank from the Monogram 1926 Mack Bulldog Tank Truck?  My brother's father-in-law ran a home heating oil delivery service for years before he retired and I'd like to build a "fairly" modern version of a home fuel delivery truck for him.

FWIW, I had a friend in college who built an asphalt truck with that same combination (commemorating one of his summer jobs). A straight tanker should be about the same configuration.

I don't recall any specifics...but it looked awesome.
