Hi all....

I don´t sleep just now. After the succes with my Diamond Reo, I decide start the work on another u.s.old school truck. There is Chevy Titan in reedition. But I´ll built it as a GMC Astro, because I´ve PE parts from Czech Truck Model (highly recommended from me).I have prepared some plumbing and electroinstalation. Engine and radiator is also on 95 percents ready.  The Cab is litlle bit (3-4mm) lowered, because it seems little high in original kit. This truck will bebuilt also under my ideas, not after original. Now some photos.

Yes, I knew what you ment; that you lowered the stance of the cab on the frame.  Yes, AMT made the cab on the Astro & Titan ride a little too high.

Please show how you are going to work on the photo etch when you get to that stage. Some pointers will be welcome.

I was not satisfied with the cables for electroinstalation. I decide to rebuilt it. After installation has rised a problem with airbrush, so it´s only painting by brush. Here is some photos.
