Done! Well, to be honest, there is still a lot to do, but at least it looks like a 1939 Dodge Airflow truck. I used the first chassis (I have to design a new one) and did not glued the cab and tank on it.

I was pretty satisfied with the cab and interior build, but the tank... Ok, it is not that bad, but I had a few problems and made some mistakes. I have not spent enough time shaping the parts and must reconsider the assembly order. I also have to design a stiff substructure to keep the skin straight. Some details must be added and I must consider simpler options for roof lights.

For sure, I have to build another tank before to even consider another complete build, but for now I have to focus on grandpa's bus so the Airflow will keep progressing at a slower pace.

Surprisingly, the exterior photos came up great so until I build a Texaco prototype, you have something to enjoy!

It's beautiful. One of my favorite clients and a good friend was a TWA retiree. I wish he were still around to see this.

It does, indeed, look like a Dodge Airflow fuel truck! Magnificent!
