Here's one that's been sitting on the workbench for a loooong time, finally dusted it off and finished up. A swap meet Ertl Paystar that had some poorly glued engine and chassis but no paint, the rest was still pretty good though.  Added AITM wheels and tires and a winch and winch tower from ebay, if you search trucks much there you've probably seen them, pretty nice pieces. Also a resin toolbox, auslowe mud flaps, and fenders, hydraulic tank and some other bits from the parts stash, scratch built the frame roller and rails. My first attempt at any weathering too, rusted the roller and dirtied up the fifth wheel. Comments and or suggestions are welcome, I'm always looking to improve.

Randy that looks great . I think that it needs a thin wash with a mix of white spirit black and brown through an air brush or a large brush just to put some age to it once you apply the wash dab off the exsess with a soft cloth for a irregular pattern . Plus before you do your dirt wash put some paper towel under your truck to soak up the exsess
