I had to go pull the kit out of the box to see if I had done anything with it since my last update. I don't see anything new.

 

The last year or so has brought a bunch of life changes for me, so modelling took a back burner. Hopefully when winter hits, I can get back to it.

 

The 1:1 truck has had some work done recently. It hasn't been driven or off road in over a year, so I started cleaning it up and repairing some things in the last month or so. Hopefully I can get it out some time soon.

Nice build!

 

I didn't realize there were different versions out. Mine has the full bumper tubes and dual carbs with individual air filters. I'm wondering if yours was a different run?

 

Some crappy cell phone pics of mine.

 

This is where I had to notch the frame to fit the oil filter, and the trimmed down crossmember-

And the oil filter, exactly where it should be-

I had to add the spacers to the exhaust, I haven't shaped them yet-

The fan also hits the suspension upright if the engine is centered.

 

I think this one might go back on the shelf for a while so i don't keep getting frustrated.


In Topic: Recomend glue for resin.

I've never had a problem with Zap-A-Gap medium. It will do resin to resin, resin to styrene, resin to PE, PE to styrene, you name it.

I like your adaptation on the tranny bro. I just started resin casting a 5.9l 1st gen cummins turbo diesel that has a 47re tranny that comes with it. I also started working on a ford powerstroke diesel based off the 7.3 gas block from the f350 dually kit

 

Nice stuff. Yours is probably a bit more accurate than mine. I eyeballed everything from pictures when I did it. Recently I've been considering using the 7.3 as a base for some bigger engines. Even if it isn't true to scale, it will still play the part.
