I'm kind of at a stand still with it right at the moment. I lost my hobby saw somewhere and I need it to clean up some of the new parts. Have to look for it here in a bit, have to take the monster to school.

Dave I'll pm you my email.

Posted ImagePosted ImageWell, I've gotten some more goodies mocked up on the frame. I think it looks pretty good. Mocking the cab and hood into place now. The castings are so thick that I'm not sure I want to try to hinge the hood. Any ideas on how to pull it off would be greatly appreciated.

Kinda torked off right now. Painted the cab and hood the other night and the paint orange peeled horribly. Even ate the primer off in places. I don't know if the paint was bad or if I didn't prep the the resin right.

On a good note, I got some mounts made up for the cab to sit on. Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

Well, I'm back at it again, repainted the cab in black. Not really happy with it though. Still going to use the headache rack but not the winch. Installed a Cummins NTD 350 I scored unbuilt off Evilbay awhile back.  As soon as my camera shows up fom being MIA, I'll get some pics up of the progress

Rob, glad to see you back working on the Big Horn again. Are you going to leave the custom quad head lights ? I changed mine out using the Titan lights they are as close as I could get to like the original ones.

Cool project. Unusual trucks are the best to model.

Dan, I think I'm going to leave the quads in as they give it a different look. Kinda reminds me of the 79 Newport my parents had when I was a kid. I'd love to see some pics of your Bighorn.

I've got to figure out a color for the frame and running gears.

Of all of the Big Horn resin conversions, the Illini version is/was the best of the bunch.

 

I used the AMT Diamond Reo chassis for mine.
