Big things with little cars

[Custom] '49 Ford COE Fuel Truck

Just thought I’d share a build I’ve been working on for a little while now. Designed the tank in SolidWorks and scratch-built it out of styrene. Decided to go with an old AMOCO theme. Right now, the decals are just done in Photoshop. Kind of just a mock-up for the moment. I was going to try and use these wheels but they might have to go. Not 100% sure yet. Here’s a few pics of where it sits and a few from along the way.
