the rear fenders are not attached yet which is why the right one is crooked but i am just showing you the rear tailights are in white just like the real truck..still have lots to do and the whole truck and trailer will be lit up in blue l.e.d.s. probably around 100 or so.i will be posting pictures as i get things done so watch for updates regularly as this build is nearing completion thanks for looking and don't forget leave me some comments on what you think

Very cool! Awesome job! But you might have to build another one very soon. If you have not seen Prime's new look in Transformers 4, here is a peek
