The chassis is almost done, I just have to finish the mufflers, and add rust and weathering.

I've added some wires, the airpump hose and a dirty rag :

I have a problem with the cab, I can't open it wide. When I've tried to open it, the front touched the bumper... I don't know why, everything is in place....


A pic of the truck in my garage diorama... :

Pierre- I LOVE how this one is coming together! I stashed five or six of these kits when they came back out, but so far I haven't yet built a weathered one.

Hi Pierre,
the same Kit is waiting on my bench to get started. I had the same idea, to make a "workaholic"-truck. But not sure this time, how far i will go with it. Just make an exercise on another truck.

your cabine looks great - the weathering is perfect!
what will you do with the chromeplated parts?

Thanks. I'll be happy to see another version of that kit.
The chrome parts are rusty or painted.

That wood looks good but with a truck that looks that old surely some of that wood would have been broken split or just lost?
