Looks great! Nice colours and detailing,, does your grandfather know that you are building this? It may make a nice Christmas present for him if he doesn't... :) :blink: :P

KJ, those are rally nice. I've got to find one of this Great Dane reefers. One of these days. Are you planning on bringing these to Fulton?


Nah, unfortunately I'm not going to be able to have any models at the Fulton show, but I should be wandering around looking. Maybe next year I'll have some there.

Yup, he's still around and he has no idea that I am working on this. I have thought about this as a Christmas present for him, I bet he would really like that.

Well life seems to have happened and over 2 years has passed, but I finally busted this old model out and started working again. Got the engine finished and in the frame, and today I painted the name and number on the cab.

 

I am also working on a great dane reefer with stainless steel sides. I bought a great dane reefer and a fruehauf box van that were both half assembled. I cut the sides out of the great dane and replaced them with the fruehauf ribbed sides (that I had cut the rails off of). I painted the whole thing silver and then put bare metal foil over the "stainless steel" parts. It's still a work in progress, but it is coming.

Haha thanks, I'll have to look at it when I get home. I thought there was something wrong with them. I was planning on changing them out for some different spokes anyways.

Finally, after almost 2 and a half years, I have almost finished this build. I still have a few tweaks to make (like glue the cab to the hinges), but it looks like a truck finally!
