The last time I showed you any exterior progress, I'd shot the first of three colours on the truck.

That's the idea. If you're an owner/operator who wants to haul trailer for CN Rail, this is the scheme you must paint your truck. I've seen quite a few but no LoneStars yet.

Ahhhh MAN! This is lookin' real good! I was thinking of doing the CN paint scheme on an Italeri Western Star. Now I know I'll do it! Wow this looks real good on your Loner. Keep it up and keep us posted!

I'm glad you guys are enjoying this build as much as I am.

On to the partially completed interior.

Posted Image

Posted Image

While the flocking didn't come in the box, the laminate flooring decal sure did and it's beautiful!

Posted Image

The kit comes with three decals for the I.P. but I think I can do the switches and etc. at least as well so I'm not going to use the third.

Posted Image

The kit provides decals for all the wood trim including that little panel in front of the driver's side window.

Posted Image

There's only so many hours in a day if you're wondering why the rest of the wood decals aren't on yet.

Comparing John's build (and the kit I just got in today) to the test-shot I built in December - there are small but noticeable differences. The interior has more texture - carpet on the floor for example is on the plastic (not as bold as the flocking) but wasn't on the test shot. The exhaust shields have engraved vent/mesh, the test shot didn't.

This really is a nice kit.

John, yours is looking sweet!
