Thanks Mike and Tim..
Mike I used real mud.. 2 yrs ago I built some demo cars for people, and expirmented with what to use and I found real Mud looks the best.. I made my own Screen and sifter to break down the fine dirt.. then mix in water and elmers glue.. Using an Paint brush and my Air brush, I feathered it on to create the look i wanted.. Red

That looks pretty cool. I have one of those L700 still sealed up. Is it normal for the cab to sit like you have it?

Ya for some reason, even after hackin and whackin.. It had that lean.. If i had evergreen at the time, I was goin to redo, the front section of the frame.. But due to lack of funds i couldn't purchase what i needed.. Red

Boy Robert, I looked at the pictures at first, and thought it was a truck that was real and you were going to copy. NICE JOB ON THE WEATHERING.
