Steven,
You could use the cap mentioned above, cut out windows and use some Evergreen strip stock to build up moldings. Jus5 depends on what it is you're looking for...

Awesome build Dave!  I have one of these kits in my stash.  Will one day become a rural small town fire engine.

Another update.  I thought that the pump panel could use a crosslay.  So, I began trimming...

I also was not happy with the rear of the tanker body.  While looking at reference photos from similar tankers of the period, I noticed that the angular rears often featured full compartments.  So, I fabricated full rear compartments:

I too would love to see a WorkStar!  So many possibilities on which to build from!  From a simple regular cab, you can extend it for a extended cab, or combine 2 to make a crew cab.  Not too hard to do.  I am in the process of converting a diecast Durastar cab into an extended cab...From this:

Wonder how David Gusky's Model TT ambulance is coming along.   B)

Hi Danno,
I have struggled with getting all of the modifications of the trucks side panels smooth. As there has been a great deal of cutting and piecing in as well as addition of moldings, it is a challenge. I will not give up! Hope to share some progress some!
