This is a standard american made Peterbilt with extended sleeper. I tried hard to avoid using anyone else's ideas so you'll see some items I hope you haven't seen before. It has 3 motors. one for the differential in the back, one for the steering in the front and one for the working 5th wheel. You'll also notice the doors do open and close without any problems. You can't do that on a normal brick build b/c the brick will hit the other side. I used 4 x 1 slope pieces and hinges hidden inside the door itself. The interior is all white with the seats. The motor under the hood looks similar to a motor I saw at a truck stop in California, USA. The big difference with my motor is the block has made of a lego set I bought on craigslist years ago. I have no idea what set but their clear blue. Looks great when the lights are on and you can see through it. You'll notice the tall antennas. Cross country haulers in the USA are usually pretty long. This allows them to pick up signals over the horizon. I hope you like my first build. Feel free to comment b/c I will probably respond.

Great work, and there is nothing wrong with feedback as DeTomaso said. You are on the right path.

Quoting DeTomaso Pantera That very nice indeed! It looks very well built! I saw your comment on BoW Milk truck and saw that you didn't post much because you didn't like critisism, I think you should post more, you will get noticed more then and people will only constructively critisize your creations to help you improve as a builder. Judging by this truck you don't really need to improve. Go on I dare you to post something you might be pleasantly surprised with the reaction ;-)
Hello DeTomosa, Thank you for your comment. I truly appreciate it. This was my first build that I put up and really didn't know about this site. Because of that, I never took any pictures. I've built many vehicles over the years and this is the first one I took pics of. I enjoyed this build so yes, I'll start putting more up over time. I'm more of a perfectionist so most of my builds are done on LDD first then I begin the building part. My next build has taken me about a year so far and I'm running into some mechanical engineering issues. Once that's complete, I'll put that one up as well. Thx again, Copper Penny

Quoting geoffrey boulton totaly agree with the other comments and your attention to detail is commendable well done .have you built a trailer for it if so i would love to see it
Hi Geoffrey, Thank you for your comment. I did have a trailer but I needed the pieces for another build so I took it apart before I took pics. I do have the trailer instructions from LDD. It's a little longer then most b/c I wanted to carry my MOC tanks on it. It worked well.

Very impressive! I really like the functionality of it, and the aesthetics are great too! The chrome really makes it stand out. I'd recommend joining some groups here on MOCpages - they are the best way to get your creations noticed and to get feedback.
