It's getting there, everybody! I just need to add the fuel tanks, which I've decided to leave chrome, some misc. details and the bed. I even fiddled around with some of those craptastic mudflaps we were talking about in Tim's post. The bed is painted, I just have to fit the stake sides. I'm leaving those loose, so I can keep it practical. I also need to paint the crate and drums. I'm hoping to finish this up during the day tomorrow. I have half a day of school, so I should have plenty of build time tomorrow.

This one came in at just under four weeks, a record for me. Most of the time, big truck builds take at least a month and a half (in that amount of time, I can ususally bang out three or four cars or pickups.) Well, down to the nitty gritty. I added a strobe light to the roof, a necessary addition to a construction vehicle. I also lettered it with some homemade signs on regular paper. I also made my own mudflaps, mine didn't fit and are to thick anyway. I made them from the outer covering of an old 3 ring binder. I also made a holder for the pushbroom. I figured it did the most good staying with the truck. I painted the oil drms with random colors, with one being the obligatory Caterpillar yellow (another necessay addition to a construction vehicle, a Cat yellow something). All in all, I think it turned out pretty good.
