still have a lot of work to do . all the large pins sticking out will be gone after painting. i'll need to dis-assemble everything to really get good coverage and work in different color. white and alcad 2.stay tuned, took some more reference photos today at the shop so there may be more changes yet to come..thanks for the positive feed back......john
The model certainly is an impressive build so far, the hood stretch is convincing enough to be a factory option, flawless paint & stripes.
Why not use ally tube for the hydraulic rams? it will polish out much better & you wont have to be concerned with paint thickness build up & loss of tolerance. Just curious why you limit yourself to only using styrene for scratch building when there are better material alternatives.

Very impressive build so far! I like it. Thats a good idea to use aluminium tube for the cylinders. I may try that myself sometime.
