yeah love LEGO, I reckon thost 5 months include the preparation work, right?
just out o curiosity what do you thinkabout the 'new' (to me since a year or so anyway) half slop bricks? you had one at the back of the door and one at the back of the front (black) ,personaly as I grew up with the lego between 1995 and 2005 roughly I'm not too happy with them but I guess I' just being conservative (which I somewhat blame myself for)
for claryfication (I'm sure you get the point but I like drawing with letters)
other than that it looks awesome, and I wonder how you cropped it? doesn't that involve quite a bit of work?
here's the 'old' regular sloped brick -.-. /l¯l ¯¯
and the new "halfsloped brick" look just like this
thus only consuming one 'slot' of base area and that's of course positive since it allows for more complexed works, I can't really imagine your truck with the 'old' ones.
