As a tribute to this truck this project shows some of the unlimited possibilities. Even though this specific truck was never produced as a civilian truck however after its retirement it has been used as such. Within a couple of minutes it can be changed into one of the four different editions which include:
- Semi-truck with fifth wheel
- Ballast tractor
- Trial Truck
- Log Truck with trailer
The modelled engine is given its realistic looks with detailes such as: engine oil dipstick, fan, fan belt, pulleys, hoses, oil filters and a turbo. Together with much more engine bay details which are added the looks are phenomenal. These include break fluid reservoir, by-pass oil filter, windshield washer container, internal air cleaner and steering shaft.
Even more details are to be found in the drivers cabin. By opening the cabin doors one can can take a closer look. For the driver's comfort the interior has gauges, switches and comfortable seats. Other details are a angled dash and gauge panel, a steering wheel and a gear shift.
