It has been awhile since I have been able to be on the bench due to just having another child and moving and starting a new job it has been a little crazy. Well here is my latest project. I just decaled it today and i need to clear coat and polish the whole thing and trim it out but I just tacked the grill bumper and visor on to kind of bring it all together to get a peek of how its gonna look. It is painted deep jewel green metalic. Decals are from Jerry. I is kinda hard to tell the color but when I clear and polish it I will get some better lighting pics of the paint. I hope you all like it I feel as if i am starting all over again lol! ;D

Lookin' good, like those stripes! since you lopped off all the axles, you must be using aftermarket wheels, aren't you? And the tire that's holding the front of the truck up is going to be used for the rear wheels too?

Thanks Robert. And yes you are correct I am not a fan of Italeri Wheels especially the rears the drive hubs look horrible. I will be using wheels and tires and hubs from Jamie on this build they are very authentic.

It looks nice so far. I like the colour and stripes. And yes, Italeri hubs are horrible. They must think that all the big rig wheels are the same. I wonder what would happen if they tried this approach with the 1-35 scale military stuff. They would soon be out of bussines.
