Krupp Titan SWL 80

I managed to clearcoat the bodyparts on sunday evening, so after a night drying, today was the day to resume assembly.
The fenders do align hard, so I added the cabin to guide me and hold those fenders in the right spot while the glue is drying.
A lot of tape was needed to keep the bumper and front lower grille to it's place.
The exhaust had to be dissassembled, the fenders can't be attached when the exhaust is already glued on.
It starts to look like a truck

This shows a little bit better on how bad the tape-mess looks to hold the parts together.

And another dryfit.
I also put the headlights together, I must say that they look very nice.
Quite convincing if you ask me.

@Aaron; I think we all have that problem IF I can make 12 models per year, I have enough models to last me for the next 20 years...But buying is 25% of the fun, 25% is browsing through them and the manuals. Where the other 50% is building hehe.
The truck will cost a dime or two in The States, since it is a RoG Truck, I think over here it cost around 50 bucks in store. Since it has been released before, better deals can be found.
@Geoff: You are correct sir, it is 2K.
@Curtis: In my opinion it is one of the better looking trucks, especially because of the curves, it gives something different to the otherwise boxy things.
