It is very impressive. Does it fit the scale of your muscle cars?

Thanks! Yes, of course, that's what I was counting on!

Very cool. This style of truck is just the right amount of boxy and raw looking in my opinion. If I could wish for one thing, it would be for the scale to be a bit smaller, like the 42043 Arocs. Nevertheless, a beautiful build.

Wow! Welcome to the forum and great submission.  Same scale as @Lucio Switch' s models.  When you have to use a Large LA to lift your cab... you know it is a huge truck!

One question I have is why are the rear fenders bent so much? Is this the look of the truck? If so, are illegal methods used?

Thanks! Bend under their weight, all fasteners are legal)

Very cool! It's so big and so detailed.

If you want to pull something like a trailer for the muscle cars i recommend you the new differentials, they're more stable.

This was going to be my exact comment. The wind deflector on the roof is made out of the curved panels, and doesn't look out of proportion. 

Excellent work, its a beautiful truck.

Hmmmm.... then it must be fasten to the free-floating part of the suspension?  If not, it does not appear to be due to the vehicle weight. 

Either way, as it appears now, the bent liftarm holding up the back of the rear fenders appears to be a stud too high.  Other than that... great build!

Certainly not! I mean, you will get some who frown on it, but its not like such a post is "forbidden" - if you stay around on the site for long you will be exposed to all sorts of opinions of legal versus illegal connections.  Not to mention official Lego parts versus third-party parts.  But we won't let this post disintegrate into such a discussion. :grin:

Nah hell no, there’s a dude here that cannibalises his Lego with robotics and custom mechanical parts to make really cool stuff. All flavours welcome as long as it’s majority Lego
