Default Tamiya Cascadia build for ATS in Minnesota

hello fellow truckers
I haven't had time in a long time to built something new , exciting -
too much work BS - ha -
anyhow ,
I ended up taking the job to built a Tamiya Cascadia for
Anderson Trucking Service in Minnesota .
here are some photos of the final assembly prior shipping from yesterday :

and some short video-clips in this playlist here :
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SIRc...sqHrtwXA53Ancs

the last video is kind a long , 1hr -
it's an instructional video about the truck and the R/C system , MFU etc.
I haven't even watched it yet myself ( I hope I don't have to many glitches in there , did that in a hurry last night for the ATS people -
maybe some useful info's in here for some of the newbies in this hobby , how this Tamiya MFU works -
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8vMQNj9JUkc&index=10&list=PLKtXJZIJwrddef6 1f31sqHrtwXA53Ancs


and I would like to thank Scott ( spudd ) again for getting a nice trailer for this project - a 53 foot tri-axle drop deck from customrctrailers

( the trailer you see in the videos is my Carson Goldhofer )

enjoy the photos and videos , I think this truck turned out not too shabby

That's cool! Their yard and corporate headquarters are about 45min from my house.

Kinda weird not seeing it aged and worn like most of your rigs Willy! Excellent job none the less!

Beauty of a build..i am beginning to like these Cascadias...not a fan of the real truck but if some of them were built like you guys build your r/c ..then it would be different..great job
