"The model I started out with an E R imports utility truck. I applied your pipe rack to the top. The ladders are made by JL innovations one painted refer yellow and other a RC car orange. The steps/rungs were painted with Testers aluminum and the top rung painted flat blue. I then placed N scale engine data decals on the sides. The fire extinguisher is scratch built. My attempt at a 5 gallon plastic pail using styrene tube and a staple. The other box was left over from a previous project, I used a piece of styrene channel that I capped off with strips of styrene. I went to a electronics store and got a spool of the thinnest wire they had (30 gauge) in orange. I took several inches coiled it and painted the ends flat black for the extension cord. The tools were Details West photo etched tools in N scale, and from a garage detail set from Preiser, it has a drill motor that I also attached a piece of that wire to it. The vise came from a IHC machine tool set, but I believe it was made by Preiser. I painted all the details on the truck and added Micro Scale license plates. Well I hope I covered everything."

Thank You Jack and Harry!
