I just saw the progress pictures and I must say that the engine is awesome.

 

Where did you source the stromberbergs from?  They give the engine a different attitude.

Just the right amount of chop and drop, not to mention those hood hinges are killer. You do some clean and detailed work. Can't wait to see more, keep it up.

20130109_181641.jpg

and made a air tank from a motorcycle exaust pipe and two hubcaps from my parts bin. the straps and mounts are scratchbuilt. will be smoothed and painted.

20130109_181020.jpg

ive also scratchbuilt these two compressors 12 pcs each i think they came out pretty good what do you think? convincing enough?

20130109_181419.jpg

and got the embossing done with a quick mock up

This is not my usual era of builds that I pay attention to, but I'm glad I peeked inside the thread. WOW! Very great work here! Especially the engine. Keeping an eye on this lil guy. Fantastic work my friend!

This creation just gets better and better.  I really like how this is turning out.  I started on the same kit and you have definitely given me ideas. 

I can't wait to see the body with color on it.

Love how you did that air ride set up. It's making me want to open the trunk on my Merc so I can add all that stuff with the spare tire. I can't wait to see it all painted up in that orange with that gorgeous color you have on the roof. What a combo! You should add a little color to the interior, like painting the air tank brackets orange and the compressors same as the roof. Just a suggestion, either way its turning out real nice.
