Thanks Rodney!

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

I covered the front windowmolds in chrome and put the interior together.

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

I also put the headlights together, I must say that they look very nice.

Quite convincing if you ask me.

This build looks amazing so far. If I didn't have so many unbuilt trucks in my closet I'd pick one of these up... I really need to start building faster than buying :) It's one of those kits I've been wanting to do for years.

This is really cool truck. I didn't even know this existed and am tempted to get myself one of them. It is a pleasure to follow along with your build.

Thanks guys,

@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.

Wow, what a STUNNER! Beautiful work so far, Erik. Can't wait to see it finished. It looks like a great kit too.
