I know its not a Brockway...but still an old vintage truck. Recently fresh off the bench...the truck was built to represent a just delivered unit to the dealership. 1979-1980 era...OEM GM paint, Tangier orange for the frame, Silver poly metallic (hood/cab) Detroit 8v92 silver diesel engine...interior is fully detailed...have a few small things to finish...but here "she" is...scale is 1/25th...working on this over the winter.

Turbo------You may be aware that on the ATHS discussion forum there's a guy named Robert Manley of Florida that posts as "Crackerbox Bob" . He has a growing fleet of the real Generals and Bisons, including a rare one I found for him in Mansfield,Ohio that had a 60" sleeper and a 60 series Detroit under the hood .

Hey i just came across that model you are building. Got to say wow, alot of work went into that. Alot of detail on the dash. I'v been doing truck models for over 30 years and i never could get that much detail. Good job!

I like it. What did you use for a hose going to the top of the blower?
