Thanks Austin and David for the comments...

 

Small update, I found a new jewelry supply store and came across these little guys , gave me some ideas where to put them on the vehicle...

and gonna add this to the underside of the hood, kinda like a medallion of some short with an Aztec figure head in it!

Finally decided on a final layout for the bed of the trailer...............I could play around for months on this thing but have a contest coming up the first week of September and want this to be ready for that contest. Now just have to figure out what color to paint to stone work!!!

Do you just paint that foam?  Is the finish smooth?

Jim, this version of the foam is kinda rough, which works good for simulating a stone or concrete look but all i do is spray primer with a close to the actual color paint and then do a dry brush and wash to bring out the texture of the foam.

This a pretty amazing art object, but the ladder in the bed just seals it!  :)

Randy they are from a gamers store that i go to a lot to buy what they call bits, there parts left over from games like warhammer4000 and games like that i get them for like .5 cents a piece and try to fit them on models, the smaller one in this pic is how it came, and i cut it in half and added a longer piece in between to give it some length.

Making a straight axle for the trailer so it looks cleaner without a differential that would not be used, and came up with an idea for a differential cover for the truck itself, to try to keep the theme going underside as well.....

Cool build and I think it would look totally cool if you decided to put colored acitate for the areas you cut out on the roof. I see yellow that way it would look like the sun coming up behind the building. Just an idea. This is so killer! Your creativity amazes me

Found these pyramid shaped items that will fit just right on the tailgates on the truck and the bed where it bulges out a bit.

Rethinking the boombox on the front of trailer, will probably just use gamer pieces and forget the speaker box...

 got some more done tonight, finished the other door panel now doing some detail work around the faces on the right to copy on the left, recessed a gamer piece and added some jewerly pieces on the piece that goes on the front of the bed, making a frame/hitch for the bed, working on the hood ornament as well....
