Hi, This might look finished but there's still a couple of things to go (that's why I'm posting here in workbench). This is my first attempt at a truck (previously done a couple of WWI aircraft recently) and other odds and sods about 30years ago.
This is pretty much out of the box but I have taken some liberties with the decal placement as (1) the instructions don't give you much help and (2) I have no idea where they would go on a real truck! haha.
This is a mockup with the sleeper...
I have a couple of questions though (not being all that familiar with big rigs):
1) How many brake lines should this have and what colour? I think I have seen trucks with 2 and some with 3?
2) Also where do they snake back to? Somewhere under the cab or engine bay?
3) The chrome luberfiner (oil cooler?) on the left side - should that have a couple of hoses coming out of the bottom?
4) Any tips on decal/placard placement would be appreciated (although probably too late for this build), especially all the number plate variants etc (I am in New Zealand so obviously don't see these around every day).
Thanks for your help
And one more (minor) one - they say paint the thing that holds the brake lines a brass colour which looks cool but just curious - in real life that big pole wouldn't all be brass would it?
