Very nicely done semi, Lou! The decals work, and you can be pleased with the effort. I'll agree with Mike... looks like "out of the box."

I had the same basic issues with yellow disappearing on decals I made years ago, and found that a second decal on top of the first was, although a pain to do, an improvement. If this grinds on you over time, you might consider a "metal" sign attached to the side of the truck where the decal is now. White or yellow background and the decal will pop. Life has intervened since my decal-making efforts, though, and I haven't tried this for ages, so I'm not the designated world expert here....

In any event, I recommend that you sit back, relax, and enjoy the success you've had with this build. Ya done Good!

Pete, thank you so much for your continued following of this build, your input, your comments, and thoughts, concerning this project.
This project was at times challenging, so something like the decals won't get to me after seeing the completed project. I am pleased with the outcome, and just glad I got through it.

Louis, it's nice to see you cross the finish line with this one.
It will be a wonderful new addition to your layout!

Pretty cool Lou! Your builds are always a tutorial on 'something different' to consider.

As always Greg, thank you for following along with my builds, and inquiring back in June about an update. I needed that kick start, because I was almost going to give up the project. The summer rest gave me that extra push!

Thanks Jim for your intuition about my type of modeling, and seeing them as tutorials, yes, I am always interested in the unique modeling from the ordinary, and inspired from others and what I see as a different model to build.
I enjoy supplying the information to the members when constructing and completing a model build. Sometimes maybe "long winded" as I've been told, but to me, that's a complete tutorial for someone to follow without confused questions in ones mind. Many Thanks again Jim.

Hard to keep up with you Louis. Last time I looked you weren't any where near close to finishing.

It really looks nice. I kind of like the way the decal turned out on the trailer. Makes it look like the tractor has the latest and greatest decal applied to it while the trailer has or had a previous design on it.

Like following your short and fast builds. Keep 'em coming.

How's that? On the 13th when you posted it was all painted just waiting for the decals. Yesterday the 17th I finished with decals and posted finished build. That's four days.
