do you know set 8654 Ferrari truck, because that's where I've based all my trucks on. because of the nice connection, and it also looks cool.
the turn plate you're using is a bit ugly, but the models you've built are nice.
I see some real nice designs here, I expectantly like that first truck. I prefer real brick too, but some times you just get that craving to build stuff and have to take what you can get. Hope you get some more bricks soon!
