I'll make you turn over in your grave if I post my in-progress pics.. :P

Which you will see when I'm done posting the contents of the kit. Should be another week and the kit should be pretty dang close to finished by then.

Holy carp! That's beautiful modelmaking.

Wish mine would hurry up and get here. I have a bunch of projects on the bench to throw away so I can get going on mine!

The detail the Moebius molded into this kit is just amazing. I really hope I can do it justice.

It's making me want to rethink taking the saw to one to stretch the frame and make a heavy hauler out of one! B)

The way it's going, there would be at least another week of sprue shots so I'm going to post one pic of each of the remaining sprues and provide a link so you can go see the details if you're interested.

The part in the upper right is the roof of the interior.

These pics were taken on Sunday and ZERO progress was made yesterday. Some progress was made today but nothing significantly different than what you see here.

The chrome fairing was press fit into place just for the pic..

Today's progress has seen all the wheel/tire combos glued on and the driver's side fuel tank is also on.

I'm still debating a colour scheme for the interior and the engine was painted today.

A paint scheme for the truck has been chosen and based on the sniff test, the first coat of colour should be on either tomorrow or the day after.

I've been very busy with works guys and the primer was fully dry today so the first of the three colours is now on the 'Star.

That's a little bit of Kenworth white from Scale Finishes on an International. I won't tell if you wont. :lol:

Thanks and ya know, I don't know what's up with that. I know I didn't do anything to it but that's all I know. Maybe it's time to look into it.

It appears that was an easy fix. Maybe even too easy. ;)
