It looks a lot better now with the "shoe lace" removed. I like what you have done so far. The frame is well weathered. Keep on the good work.

This kit is reedition of Chevy Titan and I decide to rebuilt it. For grille I will use PE parts for conversion on this truck so as grille. I´ll to believe to the guys from Czech Truck Model, that´s it will be o.k.
After my first look it looks like better than plastic original.

Hi all, how I promised here are some photos from the work with PE parts from Czech truck model. This is my firts try with PE parts. I feared that this work will be hard for me.
I must to talk that it was very nice and not so hard work. The great helper is bender tool for me... Exellent is that man can polish this parts.
By the cutting off the parts from planchette is very good to used something hard like the underbase. For example some square of glass or I used smooth ceramic tile...
So, if you have some questions.....

Those photo etch parts are going to look good on there...

Nice job with the photo etched parts. I still do not have a bending tool. So far I have been able to shape the parts without it. But I believe that it is a great help and time saver too.

Some new photos from my project. Followed a work with next PE parts, Concrete "raindrops protectors" on exhauts. It´s mounted together from 3 parts.
It is suggest to mount on tube of 4.8mm diameter. Unfortunately i had only 5mm. But it´s in norm, Installation without some bigger problem.
After than I airbrushed in blac, as a base colour for alclad chroming.
