Hello everyone! Please welcome my latest moc- the US Rednose truck. It does not represent any existing US truck model, though, it can have similarities to some of them. This is not a scaled model, just a truck)

It's 62mm wheels scaled model and compatible with the most of existing trailers/trucsk in the same scale to play together. 
It uses 2 PU motors for drive and one PU L motor for the steering, as a power source I prefer Buwiz, but the regular PU battery can be used also.

Hope you'll enjoy!  All images: https://bricksafe.com/pages/Aleh/us_red_nose_truck

Excellent work, the front grill looks perfect, but so does everything else! Also the outdoor lighting really compliments the build, it looks downright majestic in the sunlight!

After a bit playing with colors I got the new result. How do you find it? Should I release it in white (after a bit rebuilt to access the most oarts in white?)

In my opinion the black inserts detract from the simplicity of the lines which is the model strong point.

Perhaps the part of the issue is that being black they also match the color of wheels and gaps. What happens if you change them to another color?

I tend to agree.  If it were possible to do all white, with no black inserts I think it would look great.  But with the black inserts I would be reluctant to use this color...

Great model btw....

Your opinion is appreciated, thanks! Those panels are not too spread and are available only in several colors. I tried to paint super inaccurate in lime. Is the blue next?))

This thing is massive! Great job not only building instructions for it and building it, but also making it look good. Congrats!

Absolutely. Looks great in white.
