I have noticed a lot of modelers paint the hood and fenders seperate. My question is how do you glue the two together after painting without disolving the paint ? I use liquid cement and it is not friendly when it comes in contact with a painted surface. Do you use a CA type cement ?
Some of you know I recently moved . I am still in the process of getting my modeling room set back up.
Before the move I had purchased several items to build this Fall. One of them was this Peterbilt assortment of resin and other kit parts. Honestly at the time I was only intrested in the Bill Signs chrome trees included.
Several days ago I opened this package and actually looked at it.
Somebody had done some really nice work and had a vision that I feel should be continued on. This will be a completly different build for me as I really dont care for stretched trucks.
But I feel this truck needs to be built for the time already invested in it. I will be repainting the work already done.
Here is a teaser pic
I really like the door panels and the dash is nicely done with toggle switches even.
My current neighbor runs a trucking company. Weekends are normally heavy maintenance as the trucks run Mon - Fri.
I went over to see what all the noise was today and to my delight they are installing a new tag axle - but wait this is a kit for using old steer axles that the king pins haven't gone out of yet and easily found in truck wrecking yards.
