Hey Jon, the base for the two cabs are different, you can't quite make two separate cabs but only because you only receive one set of seats, pedals, steering wheel, etc. If you have extras or can scratch them you are good to go. Bottom line you get the major components but not the minor fittings.

Could someone please check the height of the window glass and windshield frame combined and see if it is to scale?

The height looks too tall from my point of view and therefore the roof seems a bit too high. Of course that may be caused by my looking at the Peerless/Italeri CMP trucks for so many years. Perhaps the Italeri window height is too short!

It is not off by much, maybe the height of one horizontal window frame member. It actually shows more in the height and proportions of the side window opening.
