Keep on Truckin

Hey everyone! Here is a town build of mine, an 8-wide big rig ready to tear up the open road! I still need to build something to go on the flatbed trailer, so another photo session is eventual.

it took me a while to figure out how you did the front hood so smooth... but that's a SNOT technique right? Cool man! Supurb truck design! :'-)

This is what a 8 studs wide (correct width for minifig scale if you think it's 37.5:1) should look like! It has a lot of fine details and looks much more of a truck than the standard "heavy haulers". Is it by any chance possible to make an engine which you can open up for as well?
I'm currently working on a very similar truck (with almost the same shape and color actually!), and I have not been able to fit in a motor because of all the SNOT taking up space in the front.
If there is a single thing I should nit pick about, then it's the use of stressed elements to hold the side mirrors. I don't know a way to make it "legal" without compromises. That's all.
I look forward to see something on the trailer ;-)

I like the use of those two large fences in the back, nice trailer as well (the black one in your brickshelf). It fits the truck perfectly. Now all you need is some large vehicle to haul on top it...

It reminds me of the old model team sets, but with a perfect control of the studless technic (like with your white truck in your BL gallery).
It looks a lot to the 4955 creator truck too.
Really great job yoderevolution!

The only thing I find a bit strange is the tank below the cabin door. I'm used to European trucks, and they usually have a ladder there, while the tank is in the rear section, like the second tank in your model. But it must be a matter of habit :-P
