This is really neat to see, finally! I've been contemplating resurrecting my long dormant r/c hobby, but with something I can better relate to this time (trucks, lol). However, I don't know if I am brave/good enough to attempt a scratch build of my truck (VNL) as a first build.

BUT, if you need any detailed pictures to help you out, LMK. I currently have two VNLS, (daycabs) so access isn't a problem.

Nice job so far!

Very nice build! This is a hard build, because of all the rounded parts of the truck. I'm thinking maybe use Knight Hauler headlights?? If you can find just the headlight. Very impressive build!

Knight haulers wouldn't work. Maybe some thick clear plastic. Some plexi glass might work, if you can cut it. But I don't know if the light would shine through. Hmmmmm.
