Let me tell you every square inch of this build has something spectacular to look at.  I don't get tired of looking at the connections between the details and your imagination.

Virgil coming from you I take that as a huge compliment as I have always looked up to your work since I have discovered your work and also your book on modeling the Dr cranky way. Thank you. Hopefully soon i will master the Dr Cranky painting and weathering methods because i would love to see how your paint techniques would look like on a build like this.

I was playing around with ideas for the foam thats supposed to look liked carved stone and made a discovery using the softer foam that you can emboss designs in them using metal jewelery bits and pieces, hummmm leads to even more ideas..............

Thanks James,

Sorry for the unfocused pic, could not get in any closer but successfully made my first real chain steering wheel.

I think I have decided on the trailer bed layout, but having a hard time with the truck bed, thinking the trailer bed and the truck bed should match. I was thinking that I should lose the pyramid and just make the bed contents match the bed contents.

Im trying to pin down exactly what ill be doing with the paint, I believe i have decided on this repeating pattern all over the body but done like a ghost pattern so you will just see the pattern thru the paint.........thats the plan for now anyway.

I i have been asked on another forum, or this one what im planning on for paint so i thought i would try a sample, the greener gold is translucent that is why i put it over the graphics, but the lighter gold is what im gonna use for paint not sure if the graphics will show thru it being opaque, may have to paint a pearl over top for the ghost patterns to show thru...................IMG_20130501_145749_zps5c7ab6dc.jpg

Thanks Keegan

 

decided on a design for the ends of the trailer bed, also tried making a scale wood log ladder, not sure if just for the bed or for the side of the truck to.
