This is a great looking project. The under cab detail is very good and I like the orange, this would look good with a metallic grey or silver frame!! Perhaps also try a white and black belt stripe or something like that.

Just for curiosity sake. Haven't delt with a COE in years. Should the end of the cylinder not go between the two tabs? Therefore making it stronger? Just wondering. Awesome build though.

They do I just don't have the spacers made up for the frame yet.It's just easier outside for mock up.

Oh OK. I kind of figured it was just to see how it worked. Keep up the good work.

That's some great under cab detail!!!! Too bad you can't copy it into resin as that cab will be available again soon.

Hey Dave

Unless I am way out in left field,,,my cab and this cab are for the most part the same cab and both are 1/25th scale. The cab I am casting now is one of the cabs in this post reworked by the man who made the master for it,,,he made it back in 2003 I think, this is prolly one that Bobby Griffen cast a few years back. The diff in the cab I am casting and this cab is the doors were cut out and 377 kit doors grafted in, the baggage doors, sleeper vents, cab steps rewoked and the leading edge of the roof was reworked and sloped off more like the 1:1 trucks. But I would think they are the same scale, mine is 110mm front to back, thats 110 inch in scale and I would bet the cab here is the same,,,

I can't decide which way to hang the mud flaps, but I'm leaning toward the ones on the fenders
