Carson Posion truck motor arrived yesterday along with the cranked steering arm.

Both fitted and make a huge difference. Turning circle much improved and the scale speed is much better. More torque, less rpm.

Been playing around with a false wall for the MFC-03 to fit on the back, enabling the cab interior to be fitted.

Made some progress, false wall hinged and electrics fitted.

Wiring just needs tidying and it’s done.

Griffin stickers arrived for the cab sides :)

I guess five inch will be ok, they don't all have to be six feet tall, and two of my shorter older brothers were truckers :thumbup:
