Thanks guys.

Yeah, For a time White owned both Diamond Reo and Autocar, and Western Star was the east coast portion of White. At that time they all used the same cab. Several AMT kits used this cab. because of that. It's found in the Autocar kits, Diamond Reo, Road Boss and White Western Star. Might be some others that I'm forgetting.

Thanks! Didn't know White Motors owned Autocar.

I have a tutorial ready. I'll post it up soon.


Building the steps. It's just hanging there with blu tack for now, and the phone pic washed out most of the detail.

Man, this plastic truck is rustier than a real one that's been at a scrapyard for 30 years! Your rust is really convincing!

Pic's a bit washed out again. I'll try to get some better lit pics tomorrow.

Scratch building front bumper and grill guard. Close to finished with this part.

The pic may be washed out, but I like it. Maybe not the best image for showing your progress, but it has a kind of 'arty' feel to it. Almost looks like a painting.

Will you look at the plumbing on this thing! It hurts just to think you have to "mess it up" with rust and dirt!! You sir have a lot of guts to do this! Great work.

I wouldn't feel right if it was clean.


Pretty much done with the engine for now.

That is amazing mate - well done. I really like the before and after photo's on the engine. I for one (as a recent convert from aircraft to trucks) am really looking forward to your tutorial.
Cheers
