I agree, it's good to see an old friend back with us once again. B)

Rommel, I was starting to think that the earth had eaten you up. :D

Ok heres my first official post in almost a year (i think) anyway let me see if i can remember how this goes. I wanted to work on something easy to get me inspired again (that failed misserably) so i started on the interior. I was gonna do it basic and simple (that never seems to happen for me) but i ended up putting woodgrain in it. here are a few pics of the start of things..... I hope you enjoy. B)

heres some of the materials i used.

what i did was to just make an ovelay of what was included in the kit.

Brilliant idea to use veneer like that, Romell. I was just thinking that would look good on a woody wagon.

This is an amazing piece of work you'd done.

Aftashox, I have recovered from my marathon and am back in the game! Those cabinets are looking good. That veneer looks like the iron-on tape I use for making cabinets. Do you iron it on or use some other method? If you're not ironing it on, you might look into unglued veneer. It's much thinner, and comes in a lot more flavors. If it's hard to find, let me know, I'll send you a batch for the privilege of watching your builds!

Hey basher thx for your offer I havent seen any unglued, im just gluing it onto the plastic with CA glue. I would love to get some without glue. i could use that in alot of applications in modelling. And its always my pleasure to build with you guys in mind. B)

Aftashox, I am a rookie to forums and such, and don't know how to do a private transaction. I have literally a ton of unglued veneer, and could shove a bunch in an envelope and mail it to you, if we can figure out how.

Its no more expensive than you would pay here in the states , they drop the 16% tax on it and the shipping is about the same. I saw these same wheels on a site based here in the states and he wanted 180 bucks for it I came out cheaper getting them from KFS. :P


didnt know you can buy all alum aftermarket parts. this is looking really kool
